Kenny Pickett’s girlfriend reacts to him being named Steelers starting QB. Pickett proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Amy Paternoster. She was college soccer player, who attended Princeton.
On Tuesday, she took to Instagram to share her reaction of the news that Pickett is the team’s starting QB moving forward.
“Absolutely beaming with pride for my man,” she said on an Instagram story. Can’t wait to se all you have yet to accomplish, Here We Go.”
Paternoster has a strong social media following, with over 27,000 followers on Instagram. She’s been vocal about her support of the Steelers and her fiancé over the last several months.
On Sunday afternoon, Pickett made his regular season debut for the Steelers. He started the second half of Pittsburgh’s game against the New York Jets after Mitchell Trubisky and the Steelers offense got off to another sluggish start.
Pickett won’t have an easy start to his NFL career. His first career start will come on the road against the Super Bowl favorite Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon.
