Dormont Football Family Cheers for Ravens to Support Son

This Dormont family will be cheering for the Ravens on Sunday—but only because they have a son on the team.

This Sunday, there will be at least one family in the Pittsburgh area cheering for the Ravens, and they have a good reason.

Debbie Gradkowski, of Dormont, has a son who plays for the team. Her younger son, Gino Gradkowski, is a rookie offensive lineman with the Ravens, according to a recent report by WTAE.

Debbie Gradkowski told WTAE that cheering for any team other than the Steelers—especially when that team is the Ravens—has been tough, but that her family is looking forward to Sunday to cheer on Gino.
