Panthers add second walk-on

Pittsburgh Panthers get another preferred walk-on, an All-Conference Quad East FB/LB prospect.

According to the Baldwin (Pa.) school district website fullback/linebacker Chris Bova has announced his decision to accept an invitation to be a preferred walk-on at the University of Pittsburgh.

Bova, 5-11 and 245 pounds, attended Pittsburgh's summer camp. He also attended the Nike Combine at Penn State, where he made a name for himself by pushing out 45 reps of 185 pounds on the bench.

He has played fullback and linebacker for the Fighting Highlanders. At Pittsburgh, Bova could develop into a defensive tackle, or possibly get a shot at fullback.

Bova earned All-Conference Quad East honors as a junior and again as a senior. He sat out his sophomore season due to a back injury. Bova carries a 3.2 GPA and has scored 1090 on the SAT.

Bova joins Altoona offensive lineman Zach Haulman as the two known preferred walk-ons.
