Give me your worst students.
Long read warning, but awesome story about a great guy who's making a difference.

Got him before I read any further. Great story. Jon Kittna is doing a great job with those kids who'll be better off for the rest of their lives.

A great read.

Default Re: Awesome Story About John Kitna

I'm really glad this was posted. I'm also glad it mentioned his own transformation in faith (and NO, I don't want this to turn into "that conversation")

On a more whimsical and fun note, it seems (and we've known this) that Kitna was the original Tim Tebow without the "magical bag of foreskins" and could actually throw the football around a little bit... #16YearCareer

Joking aside, good on him, those that helped him along the way and good on the IronDuke for finding and posting this article!!

REPPED!

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the article. It's good to know there is still good in society today. With all the tragedies we as a country have faced lately this article really helped me realized that there's still good people out there helping others.

Now, if only I spelled Jon Kitna's name right in the thread title!
