SEASON TICKET RENEWAL WINNER #2: JASON DILKS

Number of years as a Pitt Football Season Ticket Holder: More than 20 years

Favorite former Pitt Panther: Larry Fitzgerald

Favorite Pitt Football Tradition: I have a group of about eight family members who all have tickets in the same section at Heinz Field, as well as a number of my college roommates. It's a tradition every game day, getting together and seeing everyone for the game.

Favorite tailgate food: We come prepared to every game with a bottle of champagne at our tailgate. Then after a big win we are ready to celebrate.

Most memorable game at Heinz Field: The 2013 home opener against Florida State. Not the outcome I would have liked, but it was exciting to see the stadium packed and everyone cheering for our very first game in the ACC.

What are you looking forward to most about the 125th season of Pitt Football: hope to see James Conner continue to perform at a high level. Hey, he may win the Heisman as both an offensive and defensive player!

Most memorable Pitt game: Pitt's victory over Penn State in 2000. Looking forward to seeing them again in 2016.

What are you looking forward to most about the 125th season of Pitt Football: It's exciting to be in the ACC. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the same teams we saw last year, but we have a lot of exciting teams coming to Pittsburgh. I'll even be on the road to see a game or two.

Pitt safety Ray Vinopal joined The Fan Morning Show Friday after a conditioning workout at Heinz Field. Gregg Giannotti asked Vinopal if he has noticed a difference as Defensive Coordinator Matt House enters his second season.

"I believe in our scheme, and I think all our guys believe in our scheme. It's just up to execution," Vinopal said. "In terms of spring ball, we executed much better than we did in the past season, and that's going to be exciting for us this year."

Top 10 Countdown - Week Three List

Fan Vote - Greatest Combo in Pitt History: Hugh Green and Rickey Jackson (34% of the vote)
Honorable Mention: Jeff Delaney and Bob Jury (33% of the vote)

Arguably the most devastating defensive end tandem in college football history, Hugh Green and Rickey Jackson ran roughshod over opponents during the 1979 and 1980 seasons. In Hollywood movie terms, this was the equivalent of having Darth Vader and the Predator on the same defense--there was simply no escape. As seniors in '80, the pair spearheaded the nation's No. 1 defense and combined for an incredible 260 tackles, 29 sacks and eight fumble recoveries.

At last, Pitt freshman finds a home - Tribune-Review

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

By Jerry DiPaola

Pitt freshman Patrick Amara was homeless, hungry and forced to live with so many different families that he lost count.

Football might have saved him.

Amara, an all-state safety at West Catholic High in Philadelphia, finally has the structured life he always wanted. He has a scholarship, a schedule of classes for Pitt's summer semester and the hope that one day he will help carry the Panthers to the top of the ACC.

Top 10 Countdown - Week Two List

Fan Vote - Greatest TD in Pitt History: Running Back Tony Dorsett, 1976 (53% of the vote)

Tony Dorsett's senior season is the gold standard for Pitt running backs. In 12 games, Dorsett rushed for 2,150 yards and 22 touchdowns. Over the final seven games of the 1976 season, as Pitt was charging toward the national championship, he averaged 215 yards rushing per game. Having finished fourth in the Heisman balloting as a junior in 1975, Dorsett became Pitt's first Heisman Trophy winner in 1976. He earned 701 of a possible 842 first-place votes for an overall total of 2,357 points, finishing far ahead of second-place finisher Ricky Bell of USC (1,346 points).
