Not much has gone right for the North Carolina Tar Heels on the football field. Their game against Pitt on Thursday night, though, couldn’t have gotten off to a better start.
On the opening kickoff of the game against the Panthers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, the Tar Heels sent out Anthony Ratliff-Williams for the return. It turned out to be a great decision. Take a look:

It was Ratliff-Williams’ second kickoff return for a touchdown this season. He had one against Louisville back on September 9.
While Ryan Switzer set quite a bar for Ratliff-Williams to reach – the former Tar Heel and current Dallas Cowboys rookie returned 7 kickoffs for scores in his career – the redshirt sophomore is off to a fairly good start thus far. Hopefully there’s more of that to come.
