Eddie Jenkins joined DreamBackfield.com as Pitt Football Analyst in April 2017. Here’s what Eddie had to say “I am about to finish my freshman year at UPenn. I play quarterback for the CSFL champion sprint football team here so I’ve got a pretty good mind for the game. I also play club baseball at Penn and in high school at Mt. Lebanon I was a three sport athlete who finished with 11 varsity letters in football, basketball, and baseball. I was also a sports writer for Mt. Lebanon’s school paper, The Devil’s Advocate.

I have been a die hard Pitt hoops and football fan since before I can remember and I’ve been going to games with my dad since I was 3 years old. I get my passion for the Panthers from my dad who was a 1990 graduate from the university. Since his graduation he has only missed 5 home football games and when I was growing up I tried my best to keep pace with him. I think I provide a unique perspective to DreamBackfield.com because, including the 2017 recruiting class, I have played football and/or basketball against 13 members of PItt’s current football roster. That does not even include my good friend and former high school teammate Alex Bookser. I am looking forward to using those connections to provide quality in-depth articles for the site. I can’t wait to get started!”

Matt “Matty” Hawkins joined DreamBackfield.com as Pitt Athletics Interest writer in 2016.

Here’s what Matt had to say “I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh of Johnstown in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts. My major was Journalism and I had a minor in History. I have been a Pitt Football Season Ticket Holder since 2008 and go to as many Basketball and Olympic Sports games as I can each year. I played baseball, football, soccer and basketball growing up in Bethel Park. I love writing about Pitt Athletics as much as I love watching them. And I hope to make you think about some topics that I write about and hope that you read something that you may not know as well.”
