Pitt All 105: WR/KR Maurice Ffrench



All 105 is a Pittsburgh Sports Now series profiling each of the 105 members of Pitt’s 2019 training camp roster.

2 • Maurice Ffrench, Senior WR

Last year: Played in 14 games and made six starts at receiver and was also the team’s primary kick returner.

Stats: Scored a total of 10 touchdowns, six of them as a receiver. Had 35 catches for 515 yards and had 1,225 all-purpose yards, both of which were second on the team.

Accolades, Highlights: Named All-American at kick returner and All-ACC honorable mention as an all-purpose player. On the preseason watch list for Maxwell Award.

Scored game-winning touchdown with five seconds to play vs. Duke on October 27:

Made an impressive one-handed catch in the first half of Pitt’s Coastal Division-sealing win vs. Wake Forest on November 17:

Camp outlook: Needs to get on the same page as everyone else in the first year of Mark Whipple’s new offense. Should battle with redshirt sophomore safety Paris Ford for punt return duties.

Projected role: Regular starter at wide receiver, probably playing out of the slot. Will retain kickoff return duties and will likely return a good number of punts, as well.
