The pain racing through James Conner's hip was so intense he was forced to do the unthinkable:
He sat out the second half of last year's Pitt/Syracuse game.
But before going to the sideline to watch the remainder of Pitt's 30-7 victory, the star running back turned his attention to a 6-year-old boy to whom he had made a promise.
Before the game, Conner told Roman Pfister, who was recovering from his third open heart surgery, that he would score a touchdown for him.

Pitt running back James Conner has a little bit of Aaron Donald in him. The traits they share do not seem coincidental when you consider the attributes that turn good players into great ones.
They are both relentless, aggressive, physical, constantly churning and mostly impossible to stop -- stat-producing machines who demand constant attention.
Is it any wonder they have become poster children for the Panthers' program over the past two seasons? Not in blue-collar Pittsburgh, a town that prides itself on its hard-working, no-nonsense tough guys. Conner and Donald fit the mold more than most.

During their frequent basement wrestling contests, the Conner boys broke a lot of things: lamps, numerous walls, coffee tables, couch legs, futons. Sometimes they made up stories about why stuff was broken, but their parents knew. At one point the action moved outdoors, to a new backyard trampoline with netting around it. The boys ripped the netting off on the first day. In about two weeks the trampoline collapsed to the ground.
