Gunn named Big East Def. Player of Week

Pitt senior middle linebacker Adam Gunn has earned Big East Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance in the Panthers’ 54-27 victory at Buffalo this past weekend.

Gunn had a career-high three sacks and 11 total tackles as the Panthers improved to 2-0. Through two games, Gunn leads Pitt in tackles (19), sacks (5) and tackles for loss (5.5).  He is ranked second nationally in sacks (tied, 2.50 sacks/game) and fourth in tackles for loss (tied, 2.75 TFLs/game).

Gunn is helping to ease the sting of losing All-America middle linebacker Scott McKillop, a rookie with the 49ers. One year after suffering a season-ending broken neck, Gunn has evolved into the de facto general of a defense that never had to worry about leadership abilities when McKillop was around.
