Pitt Spring Football Photos VII

The Pitt football team held its first intra-squad scrimmage Saturday at the UPMC Sports Complex.

Here are some photos of the Pittsburgh event provided by Panther Digest Senior Correspondent Denise Grdnic:

Panthers coach Dave Wannstedt makes sure everything runs smoothly during the scrimmage.

Diminutive Dion Lewis will be a big reason for Pitt's success this season if he continues to perform at a high level.

Junior safety Dom DeCicco has missed the spring with a right foot injury, but he'll need to step up his play in the fall to solidify the Panthers' secondary.

Fifth-year senior place-kicker Dan Hutchins has been automatic this spring.

Coach Greg Gattuso puts his defensive linemen through some agility drills before the scrimmage.

Fifth-year senior Greg Cross has provided the Panthers with another big-time weapon as a wide receiver for the offense this spring.

Fifth-year senior end Nate Nix (front) and redshirt junior tackle Justin Hargrove give Pitt additional depth on its defensive line.

Gattuso looks to get an injury update on senior defensive end Jabaal Sheard, who has a ligament sprain in his right hand.

Sophomore middle linebacker Dan Mason takes charge of the defense in the huddle and calls the sets.

Redshirt junior defensive tackle Myles Caragein looks tough going through a drill. Just think how he looks standing across from an opposing team's offensive line?

Sophomore tailback Ray Graham has an opening to the end zone.

Junior cornerback Antwuan Reed stays with junior wideout Jonathan Baldwin and knocks away a potential touchdown catch.

Junior cornerback Saheed Imoru has a touch assignment as well in redshirt sophomore wideout Mike Shanahan.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Tino Sunseri rolls right and runs it in for a touchdown in the red zone.

Fifth-year senior backup defensive tackle Ty Tkach.

Redshirt junior Andrew Devlin gives Pitt a big target at tight end or a powerful blocker like another tackle.

Redshirt sophomore tailback Chris Burns has not been able to catch sophomores Lewis and Graham in Pitt's backfield, and a miscue like this doesn't help, either.
