The Panthers assisted in cleaning up the communities of Allentown, Beltzhoover and Knoxville on March 23, 2013.

The team collected 30 yards of debris, including 244 large bags of litter, four additional truckloads of loose wood and building material remnants and 55 abandoned tires."
The proclamation was presented by the Mayor's office over the holiday break as the entire team gathered to help wrap and organize gifts for the Christmas Day at Pitt for those in need.

Pitt freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd and his
spectacular diving catch against North Carolina this season is up for the ACC's
Must See Moment of the 2013 season. Voting is going on now through
Boyd became the Pitt all-time freshman receptions leader on Friday against Miami. Entering the game needing just two catches to surpass Larry Fitzgerald's record of 69 catches in 2002, Boyd finished with nine catches for 98 yards and one touchdown. Boyd now has 77 catches on the season. He also reached the 1,000-yard milestone when he caught his seventh touchdown of the season in the game's final seconds. With 1,001 receiving yards this season, Boyd is the first Panther to achieve that feat since Jon Baldwin in 2009.
