Baylor’s Jalen Pitre Exemplifies Football Intelligence


WACO, TX – Baylor’s defense had an impressive performance against Kansas, only giving up 14 points. In addition, the Jayhawks converted just 4-of-14 third down attempts.

Baylor Junior Jalen Pitre tied his single game career high with seven tackles. Pitre is a single-digit player whose work ethic has not only impressed his teammates – but Dave Aranda, as well.

“There’s an area of football intelligence that comes with knowing spatial relation,” Dave Aranda said. “You own that leverage and you attack and close off the space between you and the ball carrier. So whether you’re working with another defender or let’s say you’re working with the sideline. Jalen has either been taught that already or instinctively has that inside of him.”
