Jon Kitna goes back to high school

May, 20, 2012
When quarterback Jon Kitna was hanging around Valley Ranch he talked about what he would do when he retired: Go back to high school.

The Seattle Times' Danny O'Neil writes a good story about Kitna going back to Tacoma, Wash., and teaching at his old high school, Abraham Lincoln.

Here's the story.

Kitna retired following the season when his back just couldn't respond for him anymore. The Cowboys placed Kitna on injured reserve Dec. 14. He finished his career with 29,677 yards and 169 touchdowns and 165 interceptions.

He played his last game Nov. 13 versus Buffalo, when he took a knee for the final two snaps. Kitna threw the last touchdown of his career to Miles Austin Sept. 18 at San Francisco, for five-yards. Kitna replaced an injured Tony Romo (ribs), who later returned.
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
