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.”


DreamBackfield.com takes it name from Pitt’s famous “Dream Backfield” of the 1930s consisting of John Chickerneo, Dick Cassiano, Harold Stebbins, and Marshall Goldberg under Pitt’s greatest football coach, Jock Sutherland.
