We are excited to announce the addition of Bob Lichtenfels to Panther247 and the 247Sports network. Lichtenfels, who has a decade of experience in this industry will be covering Pitt recruiting and contributing across the network with news on prospects throughout the state of Pennsylvania and the Northeast.
"We are very excited to have Bob Lichtenfels join our team here at 247Sports,” 247Sports recruiting director JC Shurburtt said. “As a native of Pittsburgh and a veteran of this industry, there perhaps is nobody more qualified to lead our coverage in the Pitt market and to assist on the East Coast from a recruiting standpoint. Bob has extensive contacts throughout college football, knows players and can be an active, important part of what we feel is one of the top online communities on the Internet."
Lichtenfels is in his 9th year covering recruiting and has developed into one of the most respected reporters and talent evaluators in the business. He is a former college athlete and high school football coach.
He started with TheInsiders.com which then became Scout.com and now Fox Sports Next. Lichtenfels worked as a defensive line coach for the Scout.com/Under Armour Combines.
He has been a featured guest on ESPN, NFL Network, Big Ten Network and Fox Sports Net.
