MADISON – Gabe Pittman, who is a freshman at Bob Jones High School, started making a name for himself in wrestling when he was in seventh grade at Discovery Middle School.

Pittman is a member of the varsity team with Bob Jones Wrestling. He wrestles in weight class of 152 pounds.

Wrestling always has been Pittman’s favorite sport. “It’s hard work but worth it,” he said.

“Winning my first medal wrestling for Bob Jones” is Pittman’s most memorable experience in sports. However, he was still in middle school as a Discovery seventh-grader when he achieved that medal win in a tournament at Huntsville High School.
