Brett Keisel grew up on a cattle ranch near Greybull, Wyoming located between Yellowstone National Park and Bighorn National Forest. He is a 1997 graduate of Greybull High School where he was a 2x letterman in track, and a 4x letterman in basketball and football.

Brett thought about playing collegiate basketball after high school, but he also thought, at 6’5”, he was too small to ever play professionally. He thus decided to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, UT and to play football.

In 2002 the Steelers drafted Brett with the 242nd pick in the 7th round. In 2005, he worked his way into a rotation with Aaron Smith and Kimo Von Olhoffen. Brett made significant plays in the Steelers run to Super Bowl XL that year that garnered him capable to take over the starting role at defensive end in 2006. He stayed there until 2015 and started over 100 games. Brett was a Pro Bowler, Defensive Captain, 2X Super Bowl Champion, 3X AFC Champion.

Brett’s teammates have called him a leader and warrior; a player who gave everything he had; a true Steeler who was instrumental to the team’s success. Brett has been a leader in the community too. He has hosted and supports a wide range of charitable causes including Project Bundle Up, the Cystic Fibrosis Sports Auction, the Homeless Children’s Education Fund, Operation Once in A Lifetime and many others.

Brett’s involvement in the community is well known. So, is his thick, flowing beard. “Da Beard” is so famous that it has its own Facebook page and a dedicated website (www.dabeard.com). “Da Beard’s” annual spring shearing has raised over a half a million dollars to help kids with cancer at the Children’s Hospital of UPMC.

Following football Brett passed on offers to get into coaching and media instead he chose a new career path and launched Mighty Oak Adventures in 2016. Seamlessly blending his passion for creating unity within a group and his admiration for anything involving the great outdoors. The company serves as a unique outlet for corporations who are looking to connect on a different level and boost team moral. Brett shares his experiences from the gridiron and being a Super Bowl Champion.

Brett Keisel, #99, has endeared himself to Steelers Nation. Brett is married to his high school sweetheart, Sarah. They live in Pittsburgh with their three children, Jacob, Grace and Will.
