Rick Trocano, a sophomore.

Trocano's 1978 stats were 138 completions in 283 attempts for 1648 yards and 5 TDs. Trocano led the Panthers to the Tangerine Bowl in 1978 where they lost to NC State.

Dan Marino enrolled in Pitt in the fall of 1979 and became the starting QB. Trocano switched to defense and was a starting safety as a senior in 1980 while also being a backup QB.
