2012 Peewee Steelers | Doritos Crash {Superbowl} Commercial

Notable Moments | Steeler History | Doritos Commercial 2012 Superbowl

In 2012 members of the Peewee team were invited to participate in a Doritos Crash the Superbowl commercial shoot. The commercial was filmed at Burroughs High School in Burbank. There was another team there that day, the LA Demos. the boys and coaches hit it off that day and of course a friendly challenge took place. On December 1st 2012 the LA Demos Packers and the Newbury Park Steelers played in the first ever Bowl game at the Steelers home stadium. Two games took place that day and the Steelers were victorious!

In 2015 members of the Bantam, Midget and Junior team were invited to work on a Showtime Original Series, Masters of Sex (MOS). The boys spent a total of two days with the production team. The first day Sony Pictures came to us in Newbury Park and set the boys up with uniform fittings and went over the script. The second day was spent on set filming the scene. The boys were in full pads for 9 hours and were treated like real stars. For their efforts they raised a large amount of funds for the Steelers organization. It was also fun for them to see themselves on TV.
