One-On-One with Senior Track and Field Thrower, Taylor Slaney

Taylor Slaney Transformation Tuesday.jpgPhotographs Courtesy of Pitt Athletics and Taylor Slaney.

Q: What has been the most surprising transformation over the past four years?
Slaney:
"Being on this team for four years with the same people you learn to develop your skill set, but more importantly you become a family."

Q: How has your mentality changed towards throwing from freshman year until now?
Slaney: "I have and will always want to win. I came in a bit naive as a freshman so I quickly learned that you don't always win and that was the hardest part for me."

Q: As a senior, what is the main goal heading into your final season?
Slaney: "Now that it's getting towards the end of the road, I need to get to nationals. The pressure heading into my senior year compared to previous years is much different.  Now as a senior, every meet counts more and more. It's stressful, but I work well under pressure. Last year, I broke a school record. This year, my only goal is to make it to nationals and to become an All-American."

Q: What has been the biggest surprise in your Pitt athletic career? 
Slaney: "If someone would have told me freshman year, I would break a school record and throw for 50-meters, I would have told them they were crazy. When I came in I expected to improve and throw far, but I would have never expected 50-meters. Breaking the school record was an awesome feeling. It had nothing to do with getting my name on some piece of paper. Personally, it was a huge deal for me."

Q: Personally, how did you acclimate to life as a student-athlete?
Slaney: "It was really, really hard for me coming in as a freshman and it still is hard for me. I have learned better ways to manage my time toward school work and being an athlete. I can never use being an athlete as an excuse, because we have the assistance at Pitt to be successful. During the season, we travel almost every weekend, but the time is available to get our work done. We bring our work with us almost any where - even our track meets, because sometimes that's what you have to do."

Swimming and Diving: Senior Captain - Jon Lierley

Freshman year until now How has your mentality changed toward swimming?

Lierley: "Honestly, I would focus more on the person in the next lane rather than focusing on myself. I would constantly think, has this swimmer next to me been training more than I have? You don't need to think about the other swimmers. All you need to worry about is the clock. The time is what potentially can get you to NCAA's, Olympic Trials and ultimately the Olympics."

As a boy from the south (Mount Pleasant, South Carolina), why Pittsburgh? What was it about Pitt that made you choose to spend your four years here?

Lierley: "When I first stepped on campus, I immediately liked the urban setting that Pittsburgh has to offer. I'm originally from a smaller town in South Carolina so I was surprised by all the big buildings and the many cross walks. The coaching staff was awesome, and they were just like the coaches I had back home. The Pitt coaches are like my second parents and our team is one big family."

How have you grown as a student during your time here at Pitt?

Lierley: "The first semester of my freshman year, I was more focused on swimming. The academic center really helped me out and made sure I was scheduling time with tutors. I learned more about time management and how many hours I needed to dedicate to each of my classes."  

As a Pitt swimmer, are there any specific moments where you look back on and laugh at yourself?

Lierley: "Freshman year, I was the new kid in town. It was fun to look up to the older guys and try to challenge them a little bit. Now that I'm a senior, I've realized some of the younger guys are doing the same thing I used to do. It's funny to see them try and come after me."


Name the first one that comes to mind - best memory as a Pitt swimmer?

Lierley: "It would have to be my freshman year of the Big East Championships. It was hosted here at Pitt so it was a huge deal for our whole team. It was the last day of competition and it was my best event - the 200 butterfly and I had been training all year for it. I ended up swimming at night and earned fourth place overall. It was that moment - me standing on the podium in fourth place, breaking the school record and being first on the team."

Transformation Tuesday: Tyler Wilps

Wilps.jpg

One-On-One with Red-Shirt Senior Tyler Wilps

Q: How have you grown as a wrestler from freshman year until now at the University Pittsburgh?

Wilps: "When I came to Pitt as a freshman, I always had that basic hard work mentality. My way of thinking was simple, grind it out and get better every day. But starting last year, I finally found a good balance between being relaxed and working hard."

"The mentality you need to have if you want to excel in almost anything is finding that unique balance. In my opinion, you can only improve when you are feeling more relaxed--instead of being too hard on yourself, or focusing on the wrong things. It's important to not forget about the big picture and simply focus on getting better."

"Between last year and this year, I have had a more open mind at getting better in wrestling. Now, I try to come in and have more fun with practices. It now creates an environment where I can learn and get better at wrestling."

Q: Stepping away from the wrestling mat, how have you grown as a student-athlete over the past four years?

Wilps: "I have been pretty consistent with my school work throughout college. However, it was still a transition from high school to college. As a freshman, I told myself it was time to really crack down and I had to focus on my work."

"I have definitely matured in the classroom with my test taking abilities and in critical thinking. Now, I'm able to sift through the information a lot quicker, which I owe to prepping for the MCAT."

Q: How has Pitt's Academic Support helped you over the years? Specifically, how did they assist in preparing you for something as big as the MCAT?

Wilps: "As far as the intangibles, there is amazing support here at Pitt. They can't force you to study because that's something you have to do on your own, but the help is there if you want it. The mentality of Pitt's Academic Support--if you want to do well then they will be right there and take you as far as you need to go."

"It's not as if, they only focus on getting their athletes through college so they can participate in your sports. They take it a step further, if they notice if a person is really determined to do something then they want to help you achieve the goal."

Q: Do you reflect on your earlier years as an athlete? Right now, if you stepped back to look at the process of how you became the wrestler you are today, what would you have to say about that journey?

Wilps: "It was definitely a slow process, sometimes you improve, plateau or even decline. There's definitely not a clear path in my improvement."

"In terms of wrestling, I'm sure there are moments I would look back on and laugh at, but in terms of my approach I would never say my head was in the wrong place or that I would have done things differently.

"I have a little brother on the team, Noah Wilps, and he is obviously different than me, but I can also see the similarities and where he's improving in wrestling. It's interesting to see how he deals with the stresses of school and being a student-athlete. It's not far off from how I dealt with it as a freshman."

"Obviously, if I wrestled my freshman year self today, I would beat myself pretty bad."

Vote Tyler Boyd for ACC Must See Moment



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 Friday. 

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.

But before we get to that, we thought you might like to see a clip of how coaches around the country spend their bye week. Head Coach Paul Chryst spoke to the local media about this recently, but what else is he thinking during that week? Who thinks Coach Chryst just might be that guy who goes back home to make sure he closed the garage door?

The excitement continues to build as we get closer and closer to our first contest in the ACC. Today is another one of those landmark days as our first ACC men's basketball schedule has been released by the league Thursday afternoon.

The conference schedule is highlighted by the Big Monday matchup on Jan. 27 against Duke and, of course, every Pitt fan is excited to see Penn State roll into town on Dec. 3 for the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. The squad returns three starters from last year's 24-9 team and head coach Jamie Dixon will be at the helm for his 11th season. 

A full release and listing of games can be found on PittsburghPanthers.com. Additional TV games will be announced at a later date. For ticket information, call the Panthers Ticket Office at 800-643-PITT (7488) or visit online.
