Waxahachie senior quarterback Jordan Kitna is out for the season.
Kitna led Waxahachie to a 3-0 start after a highly publicized move with his father, former Dallas Cowboys coach Jon Kitna, to Waxahachie. Jon Kitna told the Waxahachie Daily Light that Jordan could be out for the year. Jordan Kitna posted on his Instagram account he was in good spirits following a surgery Tuesday by Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Stars team Dr. Dan Cooper of Dallas.
Jordan Kitna has passed for 786 yards with eight touchdowns in completing 52-of-82 passes. Kitna hurt his shoulder in a 38-20 victory over defending Class 5A state champion Ennis last Friday.
Several reports indicated Jordan Kitna suffered a broken collar bone although he returned to the game after his initial injury last week. Kitna was injured early in the third quarter but returned to complete 3-of-4 passes, including a touchdown.
Jon Kitna’s move to Waxahachie came after he had been successful at his alma mater Tacoma (WA.) Lincoln. Jordan Kitna was among several players and coaches who arrived in Waxahachie last spring and have rejuvenated the program with a fast start.
Waxahachie plays Mansfield Legacy this Friday. Junior Tyler Navarro replaced Jordan in the game but sophomore Bryce Salik could be moved in to take over the starting position for the remainder of the season.
If Waxahachie makes a long march into the UIL state playoffs, Kitna could possibly return with most shoulder injuries taking eight to 10 weeks for recovery.
