PITT ATHLETE OF THE WEEK:
Football: Devin Street. Street became Pitt’s all-time receptions leader at Navy last Saturday. He finished the game with nine catches for 96 yards and one touchdown, and passed Latef Grim (1998-2000) for the top spot with his second catch of the game. Street now has 186 career catches, and he also moved into third place on Pitt’s career receiving yards list, passing Grim and Larry Fitzgerald. With 2,692 career receiving yards, he needs just 370 more yards to pass Antonio Bryant (3,061) for the most receiving yards in school history. (Read More).

Against the Wolfpack, Wynn contributed six kills and 13 digs, and against the Tar Heels she had 15 kills while hitting at a .625 clip (15K – 0E – 24TA) and four digs. Wynn continues to lead the Panthers in kills this season with 265 and has the second most digs with 191. (Read More).
