Halloween Prank Scares the Crap Out of Pitt Football Players

Man, is there really anything better than perfectly executing a classic Halloween prank? I remember one year when my dad dressed like a scarecrow, put the bowl of Halloween candy next to him, and scared the shit out of unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. Needless to say, we weren’t the most popular house that year, but boy was it hilarious.

Several unsuspecting Pitt Panthers weren’t ready for this year’s greatest Halloween prank as several nearly soiled themselves thanks to Assistant Director of Player Personnel Karlo Zovko. He pulled on a full-blown Pitt blue and gold uniform, acted like a mannequin as he stood as still as possible, and the results were incredible.

Wait until the end when one of these college football players just hits the ground and cowers in sheer terror.

Pitt Halloween Prank

The University of Pittsburgh’s head coach Pat Narduzzi sent the hilarious Halloween prank in tweet with the caption, “Halloween Night, don’t get tricked! Hail to Pitt!”

The defending ACC Coastal Division champions don’t have much scaring them midway through the 2019 season, aside from Zovko that is. The Pitt Panthers entered November with a 5-3 record and are buoyed by a huge Sept. 21 upset of then-No. 15 UCF. That was the first of four-straight victories to put Pitt comfortably in contention to win the division again. Upcoming conference games against North Carolina and Virginia Tech will be massive, but the football team’s undoing may be a season-opening loss to the division-leading Virginia Cavaliers.

Pending an unforeseen collapse, Narduzzi and his team, which ranks 14th in total defense (291.0 yards allowed per game), will be bowl bound for the second-straight year.

Instilling a little fear never hurt anybody, and while a lot of programs are scrambling to right the ship before it sinks, Pitt football is smooth sailing and having some fun in the process.


Every prank is instantly going to grab my attention, so I think it’s time to break out the big guns and have a smelly little prank of my own.
