Pitt LS Cal Adomitis Announces ‘Cal’s Kids’ Fundraiser with UPMC’s Children’s Hospital



Panthers fifth-year long snapper Cal Adomitis held a press conference at the team’s Southside facility on Thursday, Oct. 7 to announce his ‘Cal’s Kids’ fundraiser. His goal is to raise $94,000 for UPMC’s Children’s Hospital, a reference to his jersey number. 

Adomitis, famed for his long, curly hair, said that he will shave his head once the Panthers’ season ends in a show of support for children with cancer.

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi said that he’s proud of Adomitis for using his platform for a good cause. 

“When we talk about our program goals, we talk about graduation, winning championships, and one of those is giving back to the community,” Narduzzi said. “It’s a tribute to who he is as a person.”

Adomitis, a Pittsburgh native who graduated from Central Catholic High School, didn’t mince words about what his fundraiser means to him.

“It’s a great opportunity to give back to the city that I love,” Adomitis said.
