Pitt Football Training Camp: Anthony Gonzalez Discusses Arrest

Pitt quarterback Anthony Gonzalez was at training camp and had plenty to say about his arrest over the summer:

“I deserve what I got, and I’ve learned from it,” Gonzalez said.

“I should have never put myself in that situation. I should not have never been there [in a car with some friends, where the arrest occurred]. I’m just ready to move on and be a part of this team.”

Gonzalez went on and sounded extremely contrite about the incident. He also went on to talk about his diminished role with the team:

“I also had a big chance of playing and being productive … but it is all over with now."

Well, I wouldn’t go that far. Sure, he’s behind a bit and will be since he’s suspended for Pitt’s first two games. But there’s plenty of season left after that and if he displays the promise he showed in Spring practice, there’s no reason he can’t come back to claim the backup job to Tino Sunseri. Mark Myers probably had a good hold on that role for now, but that’s something that could change down the line.
