Tyrique Jarrett ACC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, three Panthers won weekly ACC awards for efforts against Youngstown State. This week, Pitt had another award winner with tackle Tyrique Jarrett taking home ACC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week honors.

Jarrett was extremely active in the backfield, channeling Aaron Donald while racking up five tackles, including three for losses against Akron. He was part of a defense that limited the Zips to only 47 rushing yards on 24 carries and a total of seven points.

The Pitt defense played very well in poor conditions on Sunday and Jarrett was right in the middle of things. The competition will surely get tougher but based on what we saw out of the defense last year, there are also reasons to be encouraged. The Panthers nearly pitched a shutout against a team that defeated them last season and as younger guys get more experience, they will only get better the rest of the way.
