Rewind Wednesday: Jon Kitna

Every Wednesday, High School Football America’s Jeff Fisher will dive into his well-stocked treasure chest of interviews to talk with NFL players who love to talk about their love of high school football.

This week’s Rewind Wednesday takes you back to 2012 when Jeff spoke with NFL Legend Jon Kitna, who was returning to his alma mater, Lincoln High School, in Tacoma, Washington to become the Abes’ head coach and a math teacher at the school.

The 16-year NFL quarterback, who is currently the head coach at Burleson High School in Texas, led Lincoln to a 5-5 record in his first year. The Abes then improved to 8-2 in Kitna’s second year. In his third year in 2014, Lincoln was undefeated during the regular season before finishing 11-1 after a loss in the Class 3A state quarterfinals.
