Get to Know Your Orange Man: #48, RB Joe Pinjuh

A walk-on adding to the stable of running backs.

Syracuse v Maryland

Name: Joe Pinjuh

Position: Running back

Year: Freshman

Height: 5’9”

Weight: 205 lbs.

Hometown: Independence, Ohio

High School: Padua Franciscan

2020 stats: Can’t find any.

2021 projections: As a true walk-on, he’s a likely redshirt candidate and likely won’t see the field this year.

How’d he get here?: A walk-on who was added in the last roster update.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Unranked

Money quote: Can’t find much info or quotes.

Twitter feed: None to speak of.

Tweets of wonder: I’m impressed, if you search twitter for his name, there’s one tweet that references him, and I included it below.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: It’s gotta be John Landis’s 1978 college classic Animal House. Pinjuh is a legacy. His dad was a walk-on with the track and football teams at Syracuse, so best to channel his inner Flounder and catch this flick.

Interesting nugget o’interest: While Pinjuh was a three sport athlete, football, track and swimming, he also was a member of the fishing club for Padua Franciscan, including placing in the state tournament two years ago. We may have to extoll the virtues of some Onondaga Lake bass fishing upon this young man. Before your guaranteed jokes, it’s a hidden gem of a fishery.

Let’s get a look at ya: Not much footage anywhere, but he has a few videos up on his Hudl.
