Golden Eagle golf adds East Tennessee's Greg Kitts

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Greg Kitts, a standout during his high school career at Anderson County High School, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Tennessee Tech and continue his golf career for Golden Eagle coach Craig King.

“Greg is a really solid golfer who has a total command of his game,” King said. “He’ll be an excellent addition to our program, and I look for him to continue his success on the college level.”

The son of Greg and Kim Kitts of Caryville, Tenn., the younger Greg was selected team captain in two different sports at Anderson County High School. He led the golf team for coach Johnny Cox, and the 5-11 guard was also captain of the basketball team for coach Derrick Wallace.

He plans to major in exercise science while hitting the links for King’s team.

Kitts placed third in the district and second in the region during his junior year, before claiming 12th place at the TSSAA state championships while helping his team win the regional crown and take seventh place at the state level.

As a senior, he placed first in the region and finished second in the state tournament individually, helping Anderson County to repeat as Region champions and finish second in the TSSAA state meet.
