After walking on with the University of Pittsburgh football program, Kellen McAlone has worked his way into being a steady contributor.

Over the last three seasons, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior wideout has appeared in 22 games for the Panthers on special teams, according to the school’s website.

McAlone arrived on campus as an all-district receiver at Jesuit College Prep, where as a senior he hauled down 66 catches for 1,069 yards and 13 touchdowns. The two-sport star (track and field) also led Jesuit to a pair of bi-district titles along with an area top finish, compiling an overall 19-7 record over his last two seasons.

McAlone, who has already earned his bachelor’s degree at Pitt in business and communication, is also remembered around Jesuit for having co-founded the school’s American/African Outreach Society (AAOS).

At Pitt, he is now enrolled in the school’s Katz Graduate School of Business.
