Amy Paternoster, Kenny Pickett’s fiancée, witnessed his thrilling NFL debut with the Steelers on Saturday from the front row.
Paternoster, who revealed her engagement to Pickett, 24, in January, took part in preseason festivities with Dani Watt, the wife of Steelers star defender T.J. Watt, as the two posed together outside the stadium for Pittsburgh’s game versus the Seahawks.
Paternoster posted the picture to Instagram with the caption “Here we go!”.
In the second half of Pittsburgh’s 32-25 victory over Seattle, Pickett, the 20th overall choice in the 2022 NFL Draft, completed 13 of 15 throws for 95 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. This earned him the admiration of Steelers supporters.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Pickett stated after the game that “really, the whole night was fantastic.” It was great to finish the first one as an NFL player in that stadium with so many family members and friends present.
Mason Rudolph, a seasoned starter, and Mitch Trubisky, a former first-round pick who inked a two-year, $14.25 million contract with Pittsburgh in March, are challenging Pickett for the starting position. Hillary Trubisky, Trubisky’s wife, also attended the game on Saturday and hung together.
