This is a spring semester Amy Paternoster will never forget.
The Princeton University senior, who is engaged to Steelers rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett, posted a collection of pictures to Instagram on Wednesday summarizing the “eventful” months.
“A pretty eventful spring for seniors! Couldn’t have written a better ending to this chapter. So thankful for y’all and the best frigging place ever,” Paternoster captioned the post, which included photos from an outdoor party as well as the night Pickett was drafted 20th overall by the Steelers.
The former University of Pittsburgh quarterback, 23, later quipped in the comments, “Honestly, a slow few months.”
Paternoster’s final year at Princeton was a whirlwind, to say the least. The former soccer player got engaged to Pickett in January, four months before the 2022 NFL Draft when the quarterback was selected in the first round.
Paternoster was present at Pickett’s draft night party, which seemed to get off to a dismal start, before the Steelers made a life-changing call about their quarterback-to-be.
“Words cannot describe how proud I am of you and how happy I am to see all your dreams come true,” Paternoster gushed on Instagram afterwards. “No one deserves this more! I can’t wait to see all the amazing things you have yet to accomplish. Let’s go home!!!”
Pickett already seems to be impressing his Steelers teammates, who sang his praises during the team’s rookie minicamp over the weekend.
“I already knew he could throw it out of the senior bowl and stuff, but it just feels comfortable to catch balls from him. It feels great,” wide receiver Calvin Austin said, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The Steelers will visit the Bengals to start the 2022 NFL season, although it remains to be seen if Pickett gets the start. The team also signed former Bears and Bills quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
