LOOK: NFL Stars Aaron Donald, Russell Wilson in Pittsburgh for Celebrity Game



On Saturday night, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin hosted his first annual celebrity basketball game that included many famous athletes and influencers.

The game featured appearances from Aaron Donald, Brandon Marshall, Julian Newman, James Cook, Micah Hyde, Jenna Bandy, Trae the Truth, Geno Stone, Sirian Neal, Jason Barrera, Gillie Da Kid, Miles Sanders, Tyler Boyd, Cam Johnson, Puff Johnson, Dejuan Blair, Flavor Flav, Dane Jacjson, Hot Shot Swanson, and Dion Dawkins.

In addition Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson attended the event, arriving at halftime and embracing Donald as soon as he entered the gym.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Russell Wilson pulled up to the event.

Hamlin, the host of the event, is a reserve safety for the Bills. He was active for five regular season games last season, recording two tackles (all solo) and played in both of the Bills’ playoff games — recording two tackles against the Kansas City Chiefs. He finished second, receiving more first-place votes than the eventual winner Joe Flacco, in the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.

NFL player Brandon Marshall was playing in the game.

Former NFL defensive lineman Aaron Donald played in the basketball game.

Hamlin competed in the game.

A local product, Hamlin originally committed to Pitt as a four-star recruit out of Pittsburgh Central Catholic, choosing Pitt over an offer from just about every major college in the country, and he would grow into one of the top safeties in college football during his time in Pittsburgh.
