Meet A'Mir - who has a strong love for football, which is why we matched him with a few of the Pitt Football players: Jimmy, Mike, & Jake! After their initial meeting at the Peterson Event Center, A'Mir claimed Pitt to be his favorite team. Although shy at first, A'Mir wanted to hang out with the boys again and hopefully attend a spring practice sometime soon. Lucky for him, the guys were all about making this happen!
After meeting his role models on campus, the guys scheduled a practice for A'Mir to come watch.
Practice was a lot of fun, having the chance to meet the rest of the team and even throw a couple of passes to some of the players. A'Mir enjoyed visiting the Pitt Football practice facility, and played a pickup game with the coach and his role models!
After attending a Saturday morning practice with the team, A'Mir also attended their spring Blue/Gold game last weekend!
A'Mir excitedly took the field as the guys geared up for their game at Heinz Field. He was able to enjoy the game from the media press box, and even got to meet reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year and former Pitt Panther, Aaron Donald! He also had the chance to meet the new Pitt Basketball coach - Jeff Chapel.
Needless to say, A'Mir has loved hanging out with Jimmy, Mike, and Jake so far. He can't wait to see them again soon and enjoy more Pitt Football events!
