Stephenville High School senior Cole Pettit signed a letter-of-intent Wednesday to continue his football career at the collegiate level, with Tarleton State University. Pictured with Pettit are his father Cliff Pettit, and mother Vickie Pettit, and (standing) brother Tyler Pettit and sister Kristen Pettit. Pettit played defensive back for the Yellow Jackets and was a three-year letterman. He lettered in basketball, track and baseball two years, and plans to run track again this spring. Pettit, who is on the A Honor Roll, said he is considering a major in the business field. He had also considered attending Midwestern University but decided to go with the hometown school, where his brother Tyler had played cornerback and special teams for three seasons, through 2016. Cole said the Texans indicated he will be used at either cornerback or safety. His senior year with SHS, Pettit led the team with six interceptions, and had 49 tackles and two fumble recoveries.
