"The campus was really nice and the academic support was outstanding. The players were all about the academics and it was almost like you were an outcast if you did not get your work done in the classroom."
Glenville HS is known for churning out a lot of football talent year in and year out and Coach Ted Ginn, who also coached the East squad in the Army All-American Bowl Game this year, has made a definite impact on Witten's life.
"I really appreciate everything that Coach Ginn has done for me. He has not only taught me a lot about football, but he taught me a lot about life as well. He took me from being a young man and he has turned me into a mature adult. There are not enough words to describe what Coach does for all of his players."
"I just grew up watching him. Donte is more quick to listen, than he is to speak. He sits back listens to what people have to say and figures out what is the best way to handle things for him. The way he handles things has taught me a lot, and it is great to have someone around that has already been through some of the same processes."
