Wuestner Ready For Year Two

Chris Wuestner was one of the highlights of training camp last year, then suffered a collarbone injury at the end of training camp. Now, he's in position to see the field in 2013.

When training camp began last August, Chris Wuestner was a walk-on. When training camp wrapped up a few weeks later, Wuestner earned himself a scholarship.

"I think I have pretty good confidence," Wuestner said. "I just came in. I knew I could play with some of these guys here at the Division I level. So I'm just trying to work every day and compete because I know I'm not the most talented guy, but I know if I keep working at it I can get there."

Devin Street, will no question, be one of the featured players in Pitt's offense. In addition to Street, players like Ronald Jones, Ed Tinker, Kevin Weatherspoon and Wuestner are all competing for a spot in the receiver rotation. It's not out of the realm to see Wuestner on the field this fall.

"Right now, I'm trying to get back to where I was (prior to injury)," Wuestner said. "Just keep focusing on working hard and getting better every day."

Asked of what he likes about this spring, he says the quarterbacks have been doing a good job, helping set the receivers up to make plays.

""I think they're both throwing great balls," Wuestner said. "I had the chance to catch some balls from Tom (Savage) during the fall. He's just got a cannon; he can really throw the ball around. And Chad (Voytik) is athletic, agile and can really tip the ball in there, too. So, we have two really good quarterbacks."
