"There would have been a lot of doubt in my mind had I not come back and played last year feeling as good as I did," Pitta said. "It will be easier to make that decision this time around when that time comes. But I'm happy and fortunate that I was able to play last year and get another year under my belt."
"I'll be able to look back on this season and be proud of what I was able to accomplish, based on my circumstances coming in," Pitta said. "It's obvious that as a team, we fell short of a lot of our goals. But if I can take away anything, it will be that I was able to come back successfully and will be able to build on this moving forward."
