GEORGETOWN -- Sussex Central High School retired the No. 90 jersey of former standout lineman Luke Pettigout, now a lineman with the New York Giants of the National Footbal League, during a special ceremony at the school's homecoming game against Sussex Tech on Friday, Nov. 5, 1999.

A guard and tackle, Pettigout was rated a first team All-Independent School selection as a senior at Notre Dame by Football News.

Pettigout was honored during the ceremony by family, former coaches and fans.
