’26 LT/DE equally impressive on either side of the scrimmage line in his sophomore season

Ethan Pittman is a fantastic looking prospect along either the offensive or defensive line. The 6’5,” 260-pound ’26 prospect started at LT for Wayne County in ’23 and got in quite a bit of productive action at DE. His brother Noah, 6’4,”295 OL has just signed to play collegiately at the Cumberlands.

’23 Season Highlights

In May of 1768, then 25 year old Thomas Jefferson directed the leveling of the already gentle top of a 868-foot-high mountain, where he intended to build his home. He called it Monticello, which means “little mountain” in old Italian.

In 1784, Thomas Jefferson left America to travel and explore the streets of France, which influenced his taste in architecture. He was mainly influenced by the neoclassical style commonly seen in French architecture, which he had his Monticello designed in accordance therewith.

The City of Monticello, Kentucky is named after the home of Thomas Jefferson. It was established in 1801 in south-central Kentucky and is the seat of Wayne County.

Lake Cumberland forms much of the northwest border of Wayne County. Tennessee forms its southern border.

Many years later the Pittman family would rear and train two boys, named Noah and Ethan, both of whom would play football for Wayne County and anchor its offensive line. Both of these young men would grow into monsters and scrimmage line stars for their beloved and native Monticello, Kentucky at Wayne County High.

They would level many men resembling mountain tops. They would thrive and flourish in their Kentucky home named for another more famous Virginia home which belonged once to one of America’s founding fathers.

This makes for a fantastic story. We have more for you along the lines of fantastic stories.

Ethan Pittman just finished his sophomore season getting to anchor the offensive front at Wayne County High. Behind the Pittman boys, the offense would achieve near perfect balance.

Behind the Pittmans, the Cardinal offense would gain 1,688-yards rushing and another 1,667-yards through the air for near “perfect balance”

The Cardinals would run for 1,688-yards rushing. The offense would pass for 1,667-yards. The team would go 6-5 after sprinting out of the gate 5-0 before dropping its first playoff game by an ungodly amount of points (63-0) at Corbin.

Noah has taken his game to college where he will suit up for the University of the Cumberlands in ’24. Ethan returns for his final two stanzas in the Cardinal red.

Ethan Pittman promises to be a big star in Kentucky high school football. Pittman will also be heavily recruited.

Pittman is 6’5,” and weighs 260-pounds on a frame not close to done developing. Pittman’s highlights are above linked.

Pittman played some defensive end in a trend we predict will resume going forward. Pittman registered 28-tackles, 7-TFLs, and 3-QB sacks. Thirty-six percent (36%) of Pittman’s plays resulted in tackles behind the line of scrimmage. That is strikingly fantastic.

Now Pittman has the height and length to be a next level star even at the Division-1 level. We know Eastern Kentucky has already had him visit and there will be many, many more.

The type career Pittman is building for himself at Wayne County is beginning to resemble the architectural masterpiece after which his home town was named over 200-years ago. Pittman is the Monticello, or “little mountain,” of the 4A classification’s 7th-district.

The Pittmans football play and even Pittman’s GPA (3.3) is beginning to resemble a masterpiece constructed in the French neoclassical style. That all sure sounds awesome, whatever that means!
