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.

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!

SEASON TICKET RENEWAL WINNER #2: JEFF HARRISON

Number of years as a Pitt Football Season Ticket Holder: It's been at least 14 seasons. It's been quite a while.

Favorite former Pitt Panther: It's hard to pick just one - I would say my top two are Bill Fralic and Tony Dorsett.

Favorite Heinz Field food: Primanti's - a Pittsburgh classic.

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.
