As Pitt football’s rising star camps continue to bring in potential recruits all throughout the summer more and more Pittsburgh high school football players are showing up ready to impress. South Allegheny’s Dashawn Carter, a member of the Class of 2023, is one of these names.
“My experience was honestly amazing,” said Carter. “It was fun working with current Pitt players and (defensive line coach Charlie) Partridge. It was almost like we were on a team with each other. The atmosphere was amazing.”

A rising junior at South Allegheny, Carter is a 6-foot-4, 220-pound defensive end and wide receiver and has already received a full-ride offer from Division-II Bluefield State College.
Last season, he helped the Gladiators compete with a 4-3 overall record and finish fourth in the WPIAL Class-3A Interstate Conference standings for 2020-21.
“I feel like what I would bring would be the passes of the edge with my coverage skills,” Carter said. “A lot of people don’t know that I can cover and play at the outside linebacker position or defensive end.”
One of the things Carter mentioned stood out to him was the facilities that Pitt had access to for football.
“(Pitt assistant director of player personnel Karlo) Zovko took me and a few others on a tour of the facilities and they are very amazing,” Carter said. “They got the new wall that is like a live video always playing on the wall. I had never seen something like that before. Pitt is just different.”
With still two years left in high school, Carter will look to improve his recruiting chances with South Alleghany High School
“I am just trying to stay humble and let the process come to me, I am being patient with offers coming in,” Carter said.
