Randy Grossman

Former Temple University and Pittsburgh Steelers Tight End Randy Grossman has been selected for induction to the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, the organization announced late last week. 
The National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame & Museum honors Jewish athletes, coaches, broadcasters and others who have distinguished themselves in the world of sports.
The induction ceremony will be held on April 21, 2013, at the Suffolk Y Jewish Community Center in Commack, N.Y., the home of the Hall of Fame.
Grossman grew up in suburban Philadelphia, and knew early on in high school he had what it took to make it to the professional level. Earning a scholarship to Temple University, where he was a three stand out athlete for the Temple Owls from 1971-73, Grossman later won Associated Press All-East honors as a college junior. In 1973, Grossman helped the Owls to a 9 -1 record as a senior when he had three 100-yard receiving performances, and was invited to play in the North-South Game following the season. Grossman finished his career at Temple with 189 receptions for 3569 yards and 29 touchdowns, and was inducted into the Temple Sports Hall of Fame in 1986.
Grossman joined the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 1974, wearing number 84. He teamed up with future hall of fame quarterback Terry Bradshaw to win four Super Bowls (Jan. 1975, 76, 79, 80). He played eight outstanding and memorable seasons in the steel city. He set personal marks with 37 receptions during the 1978 season for 441 yards, and he caught a crucial touchdown pass in Pittsburgh’s 21-17 victory over Dallas in Super Bowl X. Grossman finished a stellar career with impressive statistics of 118 played, 118 Receptions, 1514 Receiving yards, and 5 touchdowns recorded to go along with 4 Super Bowl rings.
