This year's Dapper Dan awards have a decidedly Pitt lean.

Steelers running back and former Pitt star James Conner was named the Sportsman of the Year, and Pitt athletic director Heather Lyke was selected as Sportswoman of the Year for 2018 in the annual awards, which will be given by Dapper Dan Charities at its annual banquet Feb. 20.

Conner, who became the Steelers' starting running back this season after Le'Veon Bell elected to hold out, has amassed 1,376 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns and was named the AFC's starting running back for the Pro Bowl, despite missing the past three games with an ankle injury.
