Pittman plays both wideout and safety for the Knights, but sees most of his time on the defensive side of the ball.
In the Covid-19 shortened season, Pittman was only able to play in eight games, but he did register 20 tackles on the year, with 1 tackle for loss. Pittman also forced one fumble and recovered another on the season.
At 6’1, 175 pounds, Pittman has the size that coaches like to see at the next level, and he continues to add to that frame as he is a workhorse in the weight-room! Pittman has a max squat of 335 pounds and a deadlift of 350!
Pittman is a true blazer, as he has an unofficial clocked 4.5 in the forty-yard-dash!
Although the season did not end the way that he and his teammates would have liked, Pittman still had great things to say about their 2020 campaign.
“I feel like we had a great run this season,” Pittman said. “I feel like there were some things that we could have done a little differently, but I do feel like we all were getting better at our jobs each day.”
“I know that the future is bright with the program, with the coaches that we have and the players that are moving up.”
Pure class from a senior!
Pittman had some great things to say about what separates him from other players.
“I’m a pure competitor,” Pittman said. “Plain and simple. I may not be the best athlete on the field or maybe not even the fastest, but one thing that you can guarantee is that I will show up and compete every day. I will show that I belong with the best in the country!”
Pittman also shows that competitive edge in the classroom, as he has a 3.6 GPA, which is more than enough to qualify him for next level sports.
As a dual-sport athlete, Pittman is gearing up for a season with the basketball team where he is a point guard for the Knights.
Pittman’s senior year may not have gone how it should have, but we feel he has the goods to continue his career at the next level!
