Kittanning junior football standout Nick Bowers received a scholarship offer from Pitt over the weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound junior said he was shocked by his first offer, but knew of Pitt's interest in him after accepting invitations to both the Miami and Notre Dame games at Heinz Field.

This past season, Bowers was a first-team selection on offense and defense in the Class AA Allegheny Conference. He caught 54 passes for 856 yards and 16 touchdowns for the Wildcats (9-1).
