Bostick takes part in first full practice

After a week of waiting, the Pitt football team's three-man race for the starting quarterback position finally materialized on Wednesday, as junior Bill Stull and redshirt freshman Kevan Smith were joined by freshman Pat Bostick for the first time in training camp.

Bostick, who left Pitt's campus last Monday on the night before training camp opened, returned to Pitt on Tuesday afternoon of this week. He took part in a few individual drills that day, but on Wednesday his participation was full-blown.

"Pat had a nice day today," Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt said. "Yesterday he did just the individual work; today he actually participated in seven-on-seven and he actually did some team work. He's not allowed to be in full pads, but we weren't scrimmaging, so he was able to go out and throw and make some decisions.

"He did well; I was pleased with his start. It's just day number one, and as we said at the beginning of this week, it's just one day at a time."

While the rest of the team worked out in shoulder pads and shorts, Bostick wasn't able to practice in any pads due to NCAA regulations that stipulate that players must begin camp with two days of non-pad practice and two days of only shoulder pads and shorts before they can put on full pads.
