Konata Mumpfield’s early effort earns the lead for Pitt Football

PITTSBURGH — Each year, the Pitt Panthers elect a new set of leaders. Separated from the smaller group of team captains, the EAGLES are made up of 11 players, two players from each grade plus three super seniors, chosen by their peers to represent them in discussions with the coaching staff. These men must be smart, articulate and – above all – trusted by their teammates.

These positions are typically filled by veteran stars, players who know their teammates and the Pitt program intimately—you’re unlikely to find a new arrival among them. So the fact that transfer receiver Konata Mumpfield was selected as a 2022 EAGLE is even more surprising.
