Texans' Pitts Making His Way in Football Career

They can't call him "big for nothing" any more. Chester Pitts used to be called "big for nothing" by his brothers and sisters for not playing football as a teenager. Although, the high school he attended didn't have a team. Pitts has since parlayed a walk-on career at San Diego State into a second round draft selection with the expansion Houston Texans.

Pitts received a pleasant surprise at training camp this week. He was moved from guard into the starting left tackle slot, where injured five-time Pro Bowler Tony Boselli will eventually play.

Pitts graduated from high school at the California Academy for Math and Sciences in Los Angeles. He enrolled at San Diego State and was also working at a grocery store when a couple of Aztec linemen walked in. Pitts mentioned that he was thinking about walking-on to the team, and they told their coach. Pitts eventually changed his major from engineering to public administration and concentrated on football.
