Plus he's a local product so he may get a chance
He is a team player...He thought that he was going to be the primary recieving TE this year but Wannsedt changed things up and penciled in TE Dorin Dickerson as the the recieving TE and made Byham a blocking TE....which helped make Pitt the #1 rushing team in the Big East.

Here is what he said in regards to being slotted as a blocking TE.

"It started out, coming into the season, I thought I'd get a few more balls thrown my way....But once it started to progress, I learned my role in this offense. The offense is different than it was in the past, so my role is different. But I'm very content with it. I feel like I'm doing a great job just doing what they ask me to do in this offense, and that's really all I can do.'
Gotta love the attitude.
