Pitt's Specialist Camp

The Pitt football camps continued Thursday with the one-day specialist version that included place-kickers, punters and long-snappers.

There were about 50 participants at the Pittsburgh camp, about the same as last year, which is when about a half-dozen athletes earned scholarship offers shortly after the event that was run again by Jamie Kohl from Kohl's Kicking Camps. Kohl was a kicker at Iowa State and has run the camp for 10 years.
