Athletic Excellence


The 5-foot-11, 170-pound senior defensive back and wide receiver caught 34 passes for 523 yards and seven touchdowns this past season, leading the Pumas to their third consecutive Class 4A state title. Lytton also anchored a defense that notched six shutouts and allowed just 7.1 points per game, recording 32 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He earned First Team All-State and Second Team Washington Post All-Met honors as a junior, and he has been selected to play in the 2018 Under Armour All-America Game.

Academic Achievement


Lytton has maintained a B average in the classroom. He has verbally committed to play football on scholarship at Florida State University in the fall of 2018.

Exemplary Character


A devoted member of his church community, Lytton has participated in clothing drives and has volunteered locally feeding the homeless. “Lytton is a top-notch player with great speed,” said Ed Shields, head coach at Suitland High. “He’s an excellent cover guy with very good ball skills and his ability to run with the receiver sets him apart. A lot of people just won’t throw to his side.”
