The North Marion Colts were loaded in 2011 with all focus on bringing a championship to Marion County (FL). It did not happen as the Colts bowed out int he second round of the playoffs. However success was attained. Standout wide receiver and defensive back LaTroy Pittman is a prime example of that.
Pittman starred at North Marion not only on the football field but in the classroom and that hard work and focus paid off as Pittman, who is currently enrolled at the University of Florida, was named the TV 20 Scholar Athlete of the Year. Pittman had won the TV 20 Scholar Athlete of the Week award entering the 2011 season.
