Pitt sophomore sensation Jordan Addison has been named the DC Touchdown Club Washington Metro College Football Player of the Week.
The talented wide receiver, who was named a DC Touchdown Club High School Football Player of the Week during the 2019 campaign, caught six passes for a career-high 179 yards and three touchdowns in the Panthers’ 77-7 victory over New Hampshire on Saturday.
Addison, who played at Tuscarora High School in Frederick, Md., is an alumnus of the Montgomery Village Sports Association, the same youth football league that produced current NFL standouts and brothers Stefon (Buffalo Bills) and Trevon Diggs (Dallas Cowboys).

In the win over New Hampshire, Addison had touchdown catches of 24, 47 and 46 yards, marking his second consecutive game with three touchdown catches. He currently leads the nation in touchdown receptions with eight.
“He’s fast, he’s explosive,” Pitt Coach Pat Narduzzi said. “You see the [yards after catch] he’s getting. People are at his ankles and he’s making plays.”
