After this season at Scottsdale, the awards started rolling in. Tate Pittman was named NJCAA 2nd team All-American, 1st team All-Conference, 1st team All-Region and rated the 41st best juco player in the country by JCFootball.com. His coach also adds that, "Tate is a real good man and a real good citizen." Pittman chose Oregon over Penn State, Arizona, Missouri and Texas A&M. According to JCFootball.com, he is a midterm transfer and should be available for Spring drills.
Top JC LB Headed to Oregon
Tate, who played his high school ball in faraway Virginia was a two year starter for Scottsdale, yet quickly made a name for himself in Arizona. This season the 6-1, 230 lb. Pittman was an imposing force, leading his team with 118 tackles, with an impressive 80 of those being solos! Always around the ball, he also had 5 tackles for a loss, caused four fumbles, sacked the QB twice, recovered three fumbles and added one interception. Word is that in Pittman, Oregon is signing a David Moretti clone, which wouldn't be bad at all.
