Scott Orndoff, Football

Senior tight end Scott Orndoff played a key role in Pitt’s 37-34 victory over Georgia Tech Saturday, but he has been a steady contributor for the Panthers all season.

Orndoff finished Saturday’s game with two catches for 86 yards, including a 74-yard touchdown reception that tied the game late in the fourth quarter after Pitt had just lost the lead. This season, he has 14 receptions for 203 yards and two touchdowns.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pounder became one of 30 tight ends selected to the midseason watch list for the John Mackey Award on Wednesday, annually presented to the most outstanding tight end in college football.
