PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – As the Pitt football program opens up their spring camp practices under first year head coach Pat Narduzzi, a lot of the focus will be on Quarterback Chad Voytik.
Both Narduzzi and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney spoke about their Quarterback and what they think they have in the second year starter.READ MORE: Man Sentenced For Throwing Concrete At Pittsburgh Police Car At Protest
“I’m happy with Chad. He works his butt off and he loves football, so I expect him to have a big season,” Chaney said.
“He is a competitor,” Narduzzi said of his Quarterback. “Through our (strength and conditioning) `Fourth Quarter’ training program you learn he is a competitor. He may be the most competitive person on the football team. I don’t know if he lost a race or lost a competition all winter. He is a super kid.”READ MORE: North Versailles Man Arrested In Illegal Trash Dumping Incidents
Voytik won’t just be handed the job though as Pitt brought in former Tennessee Quarterback Nathan Peterman. Peterman has two years of eligibility remaining and will be immediately eligible because he is a transferring graduate student.
Peterman was ranked the No. 8 pro-style Quarterback in the country coming out of high school.
