I guess this week's photo was more difficult than we thought! The most common answer was Todd Thomas. 

The player in the picture is however...

Defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

Donald (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.

The 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.

Name That Player

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!

Devin Street

Street (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.

The athletic 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.

After 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.

Thanks to everyone who participated! Check back next week on Facebook and/or Twitter for our next Name That Player photo.
