Dante Pettis is the son of former major-league player and current Houston Astros coach Gary Pettis. But he chose to play football rather than follow in his father’s footsteps in baseball. He is a wide-receiver from the University of Washington and is projected to be a second or third-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
He grew up playing all the major sports, but by his sophomore season in high school had decided to concentrate on football. He had his father’s full endorsement in his career decision, which hopefully pay off for him following the draft.
