Charles Andrew "Andy" Russell (born October 29, 1941) wore number 34 as an outside linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1963 and from 1966 1976, the two-year gap being from when Russell temporarily left the team for the Army. He was an early member of Pittsburgh's famed Steel Curtain defense, and was named the Steelers' MVP in 1971. He made seven Pro Bowl appearances-in 1969 and from 1971 through 1976-and earned two Super Bowl rings in Super Bowl IX and Super Bowl X.

Russell played football for, and earned a degree in economics from, the University of Missouri. At Missouri he was a member of the Sigma Chi fraternity.

As a freshman in high school, he moved from the New York area to St. Louis, attending Ladue High School. Having never played football in the East, he became a starter as a sophomore, playing end. In his junior and senior year, he played fullback and linebacker, earning all-state honors in his senior year. Heavily recruited by out-state universities, he selected Missouri and began a tradition of St. Louis area football players attending their home-state university under Coach Dan Devine.

Coming from a business oriented family (his father was a senior executive with Monsanto Company), Russell has had great success off the field as a partner of Laurel Mountain in Pittsburgh, involved in municipal finance and investment banking.

Russell is the author of two books, A Steeler Odyssey and An Odd Steelers Journey.
