Pitt announces fan-friendly events to conclude spring drills
Pitt will conclude spring football drills with a series of interactive events for fans from 2-4 p.m. April 13 at the team's UPMC Sports Performance Complex on the South Side.
Included will be:
• A youth clinic for boys and girls (eighth grade and under) conducted by players and staff that will stress football fundamentals at seven positions
• Offensive and defensive strategy sessions led by coordinators Joe Rudolph and Matt House, including film breakdown
• A talk by recruiting coordinator Dann Kabala detailing processes involved in prospect evaluation and signing players to letters of intent
• A session led by strength and conditioning coach Ross Kolodziej on players' year-round physical development
Pitt will not hold a spring game, but coach Paul Chryst will conduct a closed practice before the start of the interactive events.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
