For former running back Antonio Pittman, it's not the gridiron fueling his game anymore. He's traded in that sport for a spot with the Columbus Division of Fire. "It's a really, really, great job. I mean that from the bottom of my heart," Pittman said. ABC6/FOX 28 first spoke with Pittman about being a Columbus firefighter back in 2020, when he first started. Since then, he says he's achieved some of the goals he set out to do. "I've accomplished a lot, " Pittman said. Pittman's all about giving back and helping kids get on the right path. He says opportunities can change someone's life. So he and his girlfriend started a charity to help students. "We created Navigating Alternative Success which is named after one of her students who was tragically killed in 2019. With that we've created after school programs, tutoring, we provide resources, help them write letters for their college applications," Pittman said.
