When former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna took over at his high school alma matter Lincoln High last year, his plan was to have his freshman son Jordan quarterbacking the ball
club. But since they lived in the Lakewood district and not Tacoma, Jordan was denied the right to play varsity sports. They moved on without Jordan, switched stalwart junior athlete
J’Maka Love to quarterback and went 5-5 on the season, losing to Bellevue in the playoffs.
Jordan Kitna may only be a Sophomore but boy is he making some HUGE steps for his team and his future!
Now the sophomore rifleman is back in the fold for the Abes and doing gigantic things. The 6’0″180 pound younger Kitna has put up some gaudy numbers in leading Lincoln to a fantastic
4-0 start. The Abes are currently ranked 9th in the state AP polls.
Kitna started his varsity career in style by hitting on 16 of 28 tosses, for 241 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Abes beat Bonney Lake 25-7 in the opener. In Lincoln’s week 2 destruction
of Stadium High 62-0, the super sophomore slinger threw for 240 yards and 3 scores.
In week 3 Jordan Kitna really started to heat up. The pin point passer completed 12 of 14 passes, good for 293 yards and 7 touchdowns, in Lincoln’s lopsided 64-0 victory over Mt.
Tahoma. That boys and girls is flat out tearing it up!
In last weekends matchup against North Thurston, Kitna kept the fireballs coming in a 53-7 victory. Jordan hit on 9 of 21 passes for 192 yards and 3 touchdowns. Not a bad start to
your varsity career? 16 touchdowns throws and averaging 242 yards a game through 4 battles, not too shabby.
Adding to the Abes outstanding arsenal is Love, who threw for over 1700 yards and 25 scores last year, now back at his natural wideout spot. The 5’11” 185 pound senior is a dangerous
weapon. Fellow receiver Kashawn Johnson, a high flying 6’1″ 180 pound senior is off to a brilliant start as well.
The Lincoln ground attack is paced by 5’9″ 175 pound junior blazer Rayshawn Miller. Defensively the Abes have been stout. Their top defensive gem is Defensive lineman JJ Sali, a brickhouse
6’1″ 265 pounder. Lincoln also features one of the top young defensive backs in the South Sound in Dehonta Hayes, a slippery 5’11” 175 pound junior.
Kitna and company are definitely a serious ball club to keep an eye on……….we will keep you posted!
