Bio

Dennis Pitta is a tight end for the Baltimore Ravens. He led NCAA’s Mountain West Conference with eight touchdowns in 2009.

Early Life

Pitta was born on June 29th 1985 in Fresno California. He earned recognition in football, basketball and track while attending Moor Park High School. In his senior year, he was named National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete.

Brigham Young Cougars

Pitta started his collegiate career as a wide receiver, a position he played in high school and was quickly moved to tight end. After his freshman year he discontinued his football career to participate in a Mormon mission as member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He returned in 2007 after spending two years in the Dominican Republic. He received honors in academics and for his play as a receiving tight end. In his senior season he was a unanimous All-American.

Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens acquired three draft picks on the first night of the 2010 NFL Draft. One of the draft picks was used to select Pitta in the fourth round. He played behind established tight end Todd Heap and fellow 2010 draftee Ed Dickson who was drafted at the same position one round prior to Pitta. Though he hasn’t been a frequent starter he’s found ways to contribute to the Ravens offense. In 2012, he caught 61 passes for 669 yards and seven touchdowns in his most productive year.
