Wayne Douglas "Doug" Legursky (born June 9, 1986 in Frankfurt, Germany) is an American football center and right guard for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Marshall.
He played at Woodrow Wilson High School in Beckley, West Virginia. The 2003 Hunt Award Winner as the best lineman in the state of West Virginia, was awarded to Legursky. On September 4, 2009, Legursky was inducted to the Woodrow Wilson Football Hall Of Fame.
He set 2 Marshall weight room records for the squat (705 lbs.) and the hang clean (430 lbs.) as a three year starter at Marshall.
Legursky signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in April 28, 2007. He was released on June 28 but re-signed the following day. Legursky was released by the team during final cuts on August 30, but re-signed to the team's practice squad on October 1 after guard Kendall Simmons was placed on injured reserve.
Legursky started his very first game at center in Super Bowl XLV due to Pro Bowl Rookie Center Maurkice Pouncey's ankle injury. Legursky replaced Pouncey during the Steelers's 24-19 AFC Championship Game win on January 23, 2011. Although Legursky fumbled a snap to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the goal line resulting in a Jets safety, he helped RB Rashard Mendenhall run for a playoff career-high 121 yards and one touchdown. The Steelers lost to the Green Bay Packers 31-25 in the Super Bowl.
