Die-Hards: Pitt Quarterback Kenny Pickett is Determined to Rebound in 2019



Expectations can sometimes be good but they can also be a negative.

Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett is a perfect example of that. A year ago, after leading Pitt to an upset win over No. 2 Miami, he was the talk of Pitt fans and expected to be the next great Panthers quarterback. A year later, most of those same people believe Pitt is doomed because they don’t have a talented enough quarterback and Pickett isn’t the answer.

Unfortunately for Pickett and Pitt, that’s the nature of today’s sports, it’s a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately business.

A great quality that Pickett possesses is a confidence in himself and his ability to be a great quarterback. He’s not listening to the negativity and his only goal is to prove to Pat Narduzzi and himself that 2018 was a learning experience and a year that he won’t ever go through again.

While some players are taking a break, Pickett has been back in New Jersey working out and looking to improve on things with his personal quarterback coach Tony Racioppi. The quarterback guru is a former record breaking passers and for years is someone that has tutored Division I and NFL quarterbacks.

Pittsburgh Sports Now caught up with Racioppi and got his thoughts on the current mindset of Pickett, what he saw from him this year and the firing of Shawn Watson as Pitt’s offensive coordinator.
