The special teams unit is important to having a good overall team and an important member of that unit is returning to Pitt.
Despite having the opportunity to move on to the NFL and accept an offer to take part in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, long-snapper Cal Adomitis has decided to return to Pitt to play an additional season.

The Central Catholic graduate has been a mainstay on Andre Powell’s special teams unit at Pitt. Adomitis has played in 50 consecutive games as Pitt’s long snapper for punts and PAT/field goals and was named by Phil Steele as a first-team All-ACC long snapper and Honorable Mention All-American. Adomitis’s play also allowed to be a semifinalist for the Patrick Mannelly Award, presented to the nation’s top long snapper.
Adomitis, along with fellow Pitt Panthers Jimmy Morrissey, Deslin Alexandre, Kirk Christodoulou and Gabe Houy were named to the All-ACC Academic Football Team. Athletes must have a minimum 3.00 cumulative average during their academic career along with a 3.00 for the previous semester.
Adomitis joins Phil Campbell, Kenny Pickett, Chase Pine, John Petrishen, Lucas Krull, Keyshon Camp and Jake Zilinskas as seniors that are taking advantage of the opportunity to play an additional season of college football.
