University of Pittsburgh football and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Kenny Pickett, has been named 2022 ACC Male Athlete of the Year! He is the first student-athlete from Pitt to earn that title since they joined the league ahead of the 2013-14 athletic campaign.
"It is a tremendous honor to receive this award from the ACC, a conference that annually produces so many accomplished athletes," said Pickett. "As always, I share this honor with my Pitt teammates, coaches and staff. Winning the ACC championship together is something I will cherish forever."
Pickett finished his collegiate career as Pitt's all-time leader in passing yards (12,303), pass completions (1,045), total offense (13,112), touchdown responsibility (102) and passing touchdowns (81). He had 20 career rushing touchdowns, a new standard for a Pitt quarterback.
