Even if he can’t earn a scholarship, Pingleton said he plans to go to college. He wants to major in civil engineering, making the University of Arkansas and its quality engineering program a dream school.
“My uncle, he’s a civil engineer, and it just seems like something I’d be good at,” Pingleton said. He added that his favorite class has been a geometry class he took last year, and much of what he learned in that class should translate directly to his future profession.
When he’s not doing football-related activities, Pingleton is part of the Future Farmers of America organization, Hartshorne High School’s student council, the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America organization, the Boy Scouts and Cornerstone Baptist Church in Hartshorne.
Pingleton has had to earn his place on the Miners. But as the Miners’ starting quarterback, Pingleton has shown each week why Williams picked him to lead the team.
