Go Panthers!
 
While down in Greensboro, N.C. for ACC Media Day, Jared Shanker of ESPN sat down with sophomore receiver Tyler Boyd to discuss the impact that staying close to home has had on Tyler, as well as the impact that Tyler has had on his hometown of Clariton. 


Boyd is coming off a season in which he was the nation's most productive freshman wide receiver with 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns. Entering this season, Boyd was named to three preseason watch lists, including the Biletnikoff Award (nation's most outstanding receiver), the Maxwell Award (college player of the year) and the Paul Hornung Award (nation's most versatile player). 

Pitt opens camp next Monday, August 4. The 2014 home opener is set for August 30 at Heinz Field against Delaware.

Fan Vote - Greatest Freshman Season in Pitt History: RB Tony Dorsett (1973) (39% of the vote)

After the first day of scrimmaging at 1973 training camp, new Pitt head coach John Majors knew who his top ball carrier would be. Barely 175 pounds, Tony Dorsett seized the starting tailback job in August and then turned college football on its collective ear with a fabulous debut season. Dorsett became the first freshman to earn consensus All-America honors in 29 years after rushing for 1,686 yards and leading Pitt to a Cinderella Fiesta Bowl season. The '73 campaign, sparked by Dorsett's greatness, ushered in a Pitt football renaissance. It would be a springboard that four years later would produce a national championship for Pitt and a Heisman Trophy for Dorsett.

Top 10 Countdown - Week Four List

Fan Vote - Most Underrated Player in Pitt History: Jerry Olsavsky (1985-88) (24% of the vote)

Twenty-six years following his final college season, Jerry "O" still personifies what a Pitt middle linebacker should be: tough, tenacious, instinctive and intelligent. Lacking the prototypical measurables--Olsavsky was listed at 6-foot-2 and 218 pounds--he produced three consecutive 100-tackle seasons from 1986-88. He spearheaded a Pitt defense that ranked among the nation's top 10 in each of those seasons (ninth in 1986 and fourth in both 1987 and '88). A first team All-American as a senior, the NFL still wasn't convinced. He lasted until the 10th round of the 1989 draft when the Steelers selected him 258th overall. Defying his draft status, Olsavsky played a decade in the NFL, including nine seasons with Pittsburgh (1989-97) and his final year with the Baltimore Ravens (1998). He tenaciously overcame a severe knee injury to become a starter at inside linebacker for the Steelers in Super Bowl XXX. (He remains with the Steelers organization on the defensive staff.) When discussions arise about Pitt's greatest defenders and competitors, Olsavsky should always be prominently mentioned.
