Pitt freshman running back James Conner, a McDowell graduate, is featured in the current issue of Sports Illustrated.

Conner appears in a spread with the headline “Bowl season’s best” on page 38 of the Jan. 13 issue.

He is pictured running the ball with the accompanying text: “James Conner, freshman RB, Pittsburgh: The Panthers’ freshman ran for 229 yards and a TD — breaking Tony Dorsett’s school record — and even played some defensive end as Pitt beat Bowling Green 30-27 in the Little Caesars Bowl.”

Conner finished the season as Pitt’s leading rusher with 799 yards and scored eight touchdowns.
