I guess this week's photo was more difficult than we thought! The most common answer was Todd Thomas.
player in the picture is however...
Defensive tackle Aaron
(Pittsburgh, Pa./Penn Hills) helped
Pitt hold then-undefeated Notre Dame to just six points through three quarters in
last season's matchup with the Fighting Irish, although the Panthers eventually
fell short in a triple overtime classic, 26-23.
stout defensive tackle was one of the main reasons the Panthers' defensive unit
continuously improved throughout the 2012 campaign. Leading last season's squad
in tackles for loss (18.5), sacks (5.5) and quarterback hits (11), Donald could
finish his career as one of the most productive pass rushers in Pitt history. And
with numerous college football experts predicting him to be one of the best
defensive linemen in the country, Donald hopes to live up to those expectations
this year and become the latest Panther to earn All-America honors.
Yesterday on Facebook and Twitter we asked fans to name the player in the photo below. I have to admit that I swung and missed on the first try.
Like a lot of you, my guess was Ray Graham. Hopefully you had better luck!
Our first "Name That Player" is...
(Bethlehem, Pa./Liberty) tallied
four catches for 73 yards and a touchdown in a 35-17 upset of No. 13 Virginia
Tech at Heinz Field on Sept. 15, helping Coach Paul Chryst earn his first
career head coaching victory.
pass catcher has already put his name in the Pitt record books several times,
sitting in the top 10 of five different categories: receptions in a season,
receiving yards in a season, receptions in a game, career receiving yards and
career receptions. He enters his redshirt senior season with the chance to statistically
become one of the best Pitt wide receivers of all time.
finishing with 73 receptions for 975 yards and five touchdowns in 2012, Street
needs just 20 receptions to break Latef Grim's career catches mark and 1,015
more receiving yards to top Antonio Bryant's career receiving yardage record.
