Panthers football searching for identity in ACC

PITTSBURGH (AP) Tyler Boyd is used to the attention that comes with being among the best players on the football field. Still, the Pittsburgh sophomore wide receiver's stellar 2013 season - when he set school freshman marks in receptions (85), yards receiving (1,174) and touchdowns (seven) - wasn't enough for him to generate much buzz. Boyd didn't make the preseason...

Football Notes, 7/30

Just need to clear some tabs. Tyler Boyd stories worth reading. This one from a couple weeks back on being raised by his mother and coming out of Clairton. This one yesterday in the ACC blog talking about the aftermath of an electrical fire that gutted the house in which he had lived. The family was homeless, and not long after, the house’s owner decided to tear it down...

That Cautious Optimism

Tyler Boyd got left off the  pre-season 1st team All-ACC squad. For what it’s worth, Phil Steele did the same in his annual preview guide. I wonder how much of that is a “disrespecting” of Boyd or a belief that his numbers will drop with increased focus and Chad Voytik at QB. Either way, it isn’t a huge thing beyond additional motivation. As should be the fact that no Pitt...

Pitt receiver Tyler Boyd talks leadership and improvement

ACC Media Days are officially underway with Tyler Boyd and Ray Vinopal addressing the media on Sunday as representatives of Pitt's football lprogram. Earlier, I wrote about the somewhat unusual selection of Boyd serving as one of the team reps - an honor generally reserved for upperclassmen. He was, as you would expect, grateful for the opportunity.     Speaking to SB Nation...

Pitt: Where in the world is Tyler Boyd?

After one game against Florida State, true freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd announced he was ready for college football. In that game, Boyd had only two catches for 26 yards. But he also had three rushes for 54 yards while returning three kicks for an additional 71 yards. It was a fine start for the rookie, but also just a start of what was to come. Over the next three games, Boyd...

Pitt football gears up for Duke

This Saturday will see the Pitt Panthers head down Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina to take on the Duke Blue Devils for just their second conference game since joining the ACC.  Pitt’s offense really caught fire against New Mexico last week, and it looked like, that at least for the time being, any confidence issues that may have still been lingering after their...

Pitt WR Tyler Boyd to get more touches against New Mexico?

A week ago, Tyler Boyd played his first college football game and dazzled. A reasonable argument can be made, in fact, that he was perhaps even Pitt's most impressive player on the field in that game. With 151 all-purpose yards, there's no doubt that Boyd was a huge hit. It shouldn't come as much surprise that Pitt fans immediately called for more of the freshman. It...

Using the Boyd

One of the biggest positives coming out of Monday night — and there were a few — was that Tyler Boyd might be better than believed. On the fourth play of the Panthers’ opening drive, he took off on a “jet sweep” around right end and gained 18 yards. The drive resulted in a short-lived, 7-0 lead. Boyd ran the play twice more for 20 and 16 yards. His 54 yards on three carries...

WR Boyd hoping to emerge for new-look Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh freshman wide receiver Tyler Boyd is making a splash in his first training camp. Boyd has emerged from a crowded field to be the leading contender for the No. 2 spot behind Devin Street. Coach Paul Chryst elevated Boyd to the first team a week into camp and Boyd has quickly developed a rapport with starting quarterback Tom Savage. Boyd credited the leadership provided...
