This preseason, it's mostly been Aaron Donald hogging up the spotlight when it comes to Pitt players being named to college football award watch lists. But it was good to see senior Devin Street get some credit, too, as he was named to the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top receiver.
Pitt fans obviously are familiar with that one pretty well. Antonio Bryant won the award in 2000 and Larry Fitzgerald won it a few years later in 2003. And if we're reaching here, Bobby Engram, Pitt's receivers coach, won the award at Penn State in 1994.
Yeah, probably should have left that out.
I'm not sure what Street's chances are to win it. Actually, I do - they're low. But it's nice to see him get the recognition nonetheless. Street deciding to return after flirting briefly with the NFL really put Pitt's offense in better shape. I'd hate to think where the receiving corps would be in 2013 without him there.
