Beyond the Box Score: Rookies Addison, Barden Spark Pitt’s Passing Game

Beyond the Box Score: Rookies Addison, Barden Spark Pitt’s Passing Game

For our PSN Die-Hards, we go beyond the box score with play tracking, analysis, depth charts and participation from each Pitt football game.

In Pitt’s season-opening win over Austin Peay on Saturday, freshman Jordan Addison sure looked like the team’s top receiver.

Addison, a four-star prospect from Frederick, Maryland, has certainly been hyped up by Pat Narduzzi and company during what was apparently a pretty impressive performance during Pitt’s training camp.

He finish Saturday with team highs in targets, receptions and had 35 receiving yards, as well as rushing the ball a number of times. If Pitt offensive coordinator Mark Whipple had a goal to accomplish on Saturday that is discernible from the tape, getting Addison heavily involved and seeing how the youngster reacted to that in a game situation seems to be at the very top of the list.

The second part of Pitt’s big freshman receiving Saturday was more of a surprise.
