Coaching Bowie Bulldogs a family affair

High school football is a sport the whole family can enjoy. Just ask the three Pittmans who coach for the Bowie Bulldogs.

Defensive coordinator Gary Pittman is heading into his 28th and final season at Bowie so this season would be special enough for one of the program’s original members. But it’s even sweeter because Gary is surrounded by his two sons.

Brandon helps coordinate the offense while Darren is on dad’s side of the ball working with the lineman and backers.

It’s fair to say that they’re chips off the old block.

Gary says, "It is! You know I'm blessed to have two wonderful sons and they're a heckuva lot smarter than I am!”

"I think of it like a family business you know! It's not uncommon to see family running a business together and that's kind of the way I look at it," Brandon says.

And the Bulldogs staff certainly is like a family. Brandon and Darren are two of the six former players on the staff.
