Shaun Suisham


Shaun Suisham, current placekicker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was born in Wallaceburg, Ontario, and attended Holy Family Catholic School before attending Wallaceburg District Secondary School. As the 1999 conference offensive MVP, Suisham graduated from Wallaceburg District Secondary School. In 1998, Suisham kicked two field goals and helped Wallaceburg win the league championship for the first time since 1968. Starting from the spring 2000 semester, Suisham attended Bowling Green State University. He was on the active roster from 2001 to 2004 and played under coach Urban Meyer in 2001 and 2002. In the 2004 CFL Draft, the Ottawa Renegades drafted Suisham and traded his rights to the Edmonton Eskimos. Suisham never signed with either team. He left Bowling Green as the all-time leading scorer of the Falcons football team with 361 points and broke records with 45 career field goals and 31 touchbacks. Suisham flies under the radar but is one of the best in the business.
