But there's talk he might end up with the Steelers.
NBC's Pro Football Talk is reporting that former Woodland Hills Wolverine Steve Breaston has been cut by the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs. Breaston, who also played for the Arizona Cardinals, could end up with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the website says, noting that the Steelers will be looking for a receiver after Mike Wallace signs elsewhere. The site reports that Breaston was a favorite of Todd Haley, Steelers offensive coordinator, who coached him in both Arizona and Kansas City. Former Woodland Hills teammate Ryan Mundy plays for the Steelers.

Three students are leading a resurgence for the Woodland Hills High School track team after a few lagging years following standouts Steve Breaston, Ryan Mundy and Cambrya Jones.
The Woodland Hills track team was a force to be reckoned with in the early 2000s. In the years when Steve Breaston and Ryan Mundy, both of whom went on to NFL football careers, and Cambrya Jones, who excelled in track at Pitt and fell just hundredths of a second shy of making the 2012 U.S. Olympic team in the 200 meters, were running, Woodland Hills was burning up the track. "We also have multiple other athletes who have gone on to compete at the Division I and II levels, most with scholarships," Woodland Hills track coach Rick Yeager said. "The last few years the team has fallen off and lost some of its excitement and drive, but now Woody High Track is back on track and poised to make a comeback." Leading the resurgence for the track team…

Investigators say Robert Osselborn charged former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Tom Tumulty for a trip to Jackson Hole, WY, that never materialized.
A Butler County man faces charges in three counties for bilking thousands of dollars from multiple victims, including a former NFL player who was once a star player for Penn Hills High School. Authorities said Robert Osselborn—who lists addresses in Mars, Butler and New Castle, Lawrence County—posed as a representative of a television show about hunting to entice former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Tom Tumulty, now of Adams Township, to give him money. In exchange, Osselborn promised Tumulty a spot in a group trip to Jackson Hole, WY and said the trip could be recorded and aired on the show, according to investigators.. “He was very legitimate and very detailed about the hunting story,” Tumulty said Tuesday. That incident is one of …

Wes Lyons makes his writing debut with 'The Pursuit with Patience.'
Whether or not Wes Lyons will play in the NFL again remains to be seen—he appeared in all four of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 2011 preseason games—but his writing career is off and running with the November publishing of his first book, "The Pursuit with Patience." Lyons, a Woodland Hills High School and West Virginia University alum, started writing the book after he was released by the Steelers in 2011. (He ended up back with the team in 2012 but is no longer with them.) The goal of the book, as Lyons says on his website, "is to inspire at least one person." He continues, "That would make all the hard work and time that I have dedicated to writing 'The Pursuit with Patience' worth it in the end." Wesley A. Lyons Jr. was raised in North …

Novak is the only coach in Wolverines history.
Woodland Hills High School defied most pundits’ expectations in 2012 by racking up a 10-3 record and a berth in the WPIAL’s AAAA football championship game at Heinz Field. The Wolverines lost that game by a touchdown to the current state finalists from North Allegheny High School, but the Pittsburgh Steelers—the hosts of Heinz—have seen enough in Woody High’s head coach to include him as one of the 2012 Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year nominees. Coach George Novak has been with Woodland Hills for 26 seasons and has won six WPIAL titles (five at Woody High). He is the first and only director of athletics for the Woodland Hills School District and head coach of the district’s varsity football program. Novak and the program have …
