With rapid coaching changes and a few off the field issues the past few seasons, to say that the Pittsburgh Panthers football program has been the model of inconsistency may be a bit of an understatement.

But, through it all, there has always been one constant that the football team can rely on, and that’s the efforts of wide receiver Devin Street.

Today, those efforts paid off against Navy as Street became the school’s all-time leading receiver with his 179th reception.


The redshirt senior has been performing at a high level for the Panthers since his redshirt freshman season in 2010. He certainly had the chance to leave the school after last season and test the NFL Draft waters, but he chose otherwise so he can further make his mark on this Pitt program.

Today, he did just that by breaking this record. After this season, it’ll be difficult for head coach Paul Chryst to replace a playmaker of Street’s stature.

They do have true freshman Tyler Boyd emerging, however, but he’s doing so with the mentoring of Street, which shows how much of an impact that the senior has on this program.

Congratulations to Devin Street on this milestone.
