From high school math teacher to quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys

I’ve never been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but Jon Kitna remains one of the good guys of the NFL. After retirement, he went to work as a math teacher and football coach at his high school alma mater, getting students with learning disabilities to understand algebra (and thus be prepared for higher-level math classes in later years).

After the unfortunate injury to starting quarterback Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys called upon Kitna for emergency service. He plans to donate his one-game salary back to the high school.
