Jon Kitna is a math teacher at Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Washington, and even though he is leaving his Christmas break to play back up to Kyle Orton, he will have his students on his mind.
Jon Kitna, the 41-year-old former NFL quarterback who is now a high school math teacher and football coach, was signed this week by the Dallas Cowboys. He’ll serve as Kyle Orton’s backup if Tony Romo is unable to play in Sunday night’s NFC East championship. For that, Kitna will receive a game check of approximately $53,000 — not bad for a few days work.
But Kitna won’t be cashing that check himself. He told Cowboys play-by-play man Brad Sham he’ll donate the money to his high school, according to The Dallas Morning News.
