Teacher-Turned-NFL Quarterback Will Donate Game Check To His School

Posted on

Whether he plays this Sunday or not, Dallas Cowboys backup QB Jon Kitna is already a hero to the students he teaches and coaches at a Tacoma, Wash., high school.

Kitna played 15 seasons in the NFL but has been a math teacher and football coach for the past two years — until yesterday, when Tony Romo's back injury forced the team to bring Kitna on as a backup for this Sunday's game.

So whether or not he gets to throw any TD passes to Dez Bryant on Sunday — in a game that will decide the NFC East champion — Kitna has already proven he's a winner.

(But honestly, a few TD passes would be pretty amazing.)
