Trenton Coles competed at this past weekend's WPIAL track championships, and is on his way to the state championships this weekend.
At the WPIAL event, Coles ran a 10.95 in the 100-meter run, a 21.67 time in the 200-meter run, and his 4x100-meter relay team came in second with a time of 42.99. He will be competing in all three events this weekend at the state meet.
"I always talk to them, I talk to them a lot," Coles said. "They want me down there. They want me bad. I talk to (pass defense coordinator) coach (Tony) Gibson, (head) coach (Todd) Graham, and (receivers) coach Mike (Norvell). I just talked to another coach from Pitt, too."
As a receiver, Coles is excited about a lot of the hype surrounding Todd Graham's fast-pace, no-huddle approach to the offense. Tulsa had four receivers with at least 30 receptions in 2010. Just the thought of Pitt being able to produce similar-type numbers excites a receiver prospect like Coles.
"I think it'll work out real well," Coles added. "I think I'll be a good fit in their offense. They do numerous things; jet sweeps, and other things similar to what I'm running with now (at Clairton)."
Overall, Pitt appears to be the school to beat out for Coles' services. A good start to the 2011 season in a new system, with some hefty numbers for the receivers is all he needs to see from the Panthers at this point.
"Yes, I like Pitt," Coles said. "I like their coaches. They have a good football program. I'm going to see how it is this year. Last year was all right. They were (co-)Big East champions, so that's a plus."
