Three sons of Pittsburgh Steelers icons will be playing together for Notre Dame in the years to come, which led to a pretty awesome photoshoot.

Elijah Burress, the son of longtime Steelers wide receiver Plaxico Burress, shared the photos on social media Monday. In the pictures, Burress and his father pose alongside Ivan Taylor and his father Ike, as well as Jerome Bettis Jr. and his father.

That is a pretty great sales pitch for Notre Dame, for one thing. After all, Burress, Taylor, and Bettis are all highly identifiable with NFL success. Ivan Taylor is regarded as the best college prospect of the three with a four-star ranking, while Burress and Taylor are both considered three-star recruits. All of them committed to Notre Dame within roughly four months of each other.

Bettis Jr. and Burress are both wide receivers, while Taylor plays cornerback, just as his father did. All three are members of the 2025 recruiting class and will enroll at Notre Dame starting next year.
