Former Baldwin High School star takes a major step toward NFL career

Former Pitt standout offensive tackle Jason Pinkston is in Mobile, Ala., this week preparing to play in the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl, an annual showcase for the nation’s top senior college football players and NFL Draft prospects.

This year’s Senior Bowl will be played on Saturday, Jan. 29, in Mobile’s Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The game will be nationally televised by the NFL Network and kick off at 4 p.m. (ET)

The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Pinkston (Pittsburgh, Pa./Baldwin) will suit up for the North squad, which will be coached by the Cincinnati Bengals’ Marvin Lewis. Senior Bowl practices and game week festivities are attended by more than 800 general managers, head coaches, assistant coaches, scouts and other front office personnel from all 32 National Football League teams.

Pinkston made 41 career starts on Pitt’s offensive line, including 38 at left tackle. Pitt produced a 1,000-yard rusher in each of his three years as a starter. Pinkston was selected first team All-Big East following his junior and senior seasons.

Pitt finished with an 8-5 overall record in 2010 and earned a share of the Big East championship with a 5-2 league mark. The Panthers closed the campaign with a 27-10 victory over Kentucky in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
