For the reason that starting of the 2019 season, no group in school soccer has recorded extra sacks than Pitt. It’s not even shut the truth is.

With 196 sacks since 2019, 26 greater than second-place Clemson and 30 greater than third-place Alabama, Charlie Partridge’s defensive strains get after opposing quarterbacks.

It helps when Partridge is prepared to reward good conduct, or three sacks, with a promise: leaping into the three rivers.

“This began just a few years in the past throughout certainly one of our video games, the fellows began to have success getting sacks, and so they began to place a wager on it,” Patridge stated. “And so they stated, ‘If we get X variety of sacks this recreation, coach, what’s going to you do?’ My very first thing I considered was, I’ll bounce within the river.

Kancey grew to become Pitt’s first unanimous All-American in 2022, the primary Panther to earn the excellence since Aaron Donald in 2013.
