Former Pittsburgh Steeler Rocky Bleier To Keynote ESX 2010

Rocky Bleier, who played as running back on four Super Bowl winning Pittsburgh Steelers teams, will deliver the keynote luncheon address at the Electronic Security Expo, June 15-17 in Pittsburgh.

Bleier's keynote, "Leaning Forward Into Life," will share his journey from a soldier seriously wounded on the battlefields of Vietnam to starting running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl championship teams of the 1970s.

"Rocky Bleier is a true American hero, having overcome injuries that almost kept him from walking to becoming a football star only a few years later," said ESX Chairman, George De Marco. "His inspirational story will provide ESX attendees with the drive to perform exceptionally and improve their businesses."

While serving in the Army, Bleier was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. He is also the author of "Fighting Back," which was made into an ABC movie of the week in 1980.

The keynote luncheon will take place on Wednesday, June 16 at 12 p.m. in the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. Tickets to the luncheon can be purchased at
