EUPORA â€“ Not many athletes can play baseball, basketball, and football, let alone succeed at all.
â€śIt takes a special person to play all three,â€ť Eupora baseball coach Brad Mitchell said. â€śThere arenâ€™t many guys who can do it. You talk about Bo Jackson for a little while and Deion Sanders. Those are some of the best you can think of and they just played two, so it takes someone special to do them all.â€ť
Trey Pittman defied the odds to be a three-sport athlete. Growing up in Texas, he learned to be competitive and grew up with a true love of sports.
In the 8th grade, Pittman moved to Eupora. These days not only is the junior starting quarterback for the Eagles, but he is a part of the starting five for basketball, while also playing first, third, outfield and pitching for the baseball team.
â€śI love coming out every day and competing no matter what it is,â€ť Pittman said. â€ś(Whether) I pick up a basketball, am playing golf or anything, I just want to compete. Any chance I get to play something I love, I take it.â€ť
