Pitt Bullet Bennett dreaming big
Isaac Bennett is lined up deep in the backfield, a few yards behind his quarterback. Over 65,000 fans are packed into Heinz Field, most at a fever pitch for the most anticipated football game in recent Pitt history.

Bennett looks up from his running back position and sees the garnet and gold Florida State defenders on the other side of the ball. He hears the signals and sees the snap in front of him. Bennett starts forward and takes the handoff, he bursts through hole and sprints, untouched, through the defense and all the way to the end zone.

This is the point where Bennett usually snaps back to reality. He's sitting in class or maybe even in the film room at Pitt's football complex. Kickoff against the Seminoles is still more than a month away, but it's the driving force behind every weight Bennett lifts and every sprint he runs this offseason.

"That's all I think about," Bennett said. "Night and day." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Pitt Bullet Pitt freshmen impressed by work of Blount Home
For the seventh consecutive year Friday, Pitt sent its freshman class to Claysville, Washington County, where the Mel Blount Youth Home and its namesake founder have been helping rescue young men from troubled lives for 25 years.

Thirty players worked with the 10 current residents (Steelers rookies did the same last month), teaching football fundamentals while trying to keep up with TiAnda on an obstacle course that overlooks most of the farm's 303 acres.

More importantly, they served as role models for young men. - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
