OUR CHAMPION-JASON WITTEN

After 17 record-breaking seasons in the NFL, Jason Witten retired following the 2020 season and is currently the head coach at Liberty Christian School in Argyle, Texas. In his stellar career, Witten became one of the top tight ends in NFL history and the leading pass-catcher in the illustrious history of the Dallas Cowboys. An 11-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time NFL all-pro, Witten's 1,228 career receptions and his 13,046 career receiving yards is the most ranks second all-time among NFL tight ends. He owns the Cowboys records in both categories. In 2012, he set an NFL record for most catches by a tight end in a season (103) and most receptions by a tight end in a game (18).
 
In addition to being named as the Dallas Cowboys Man of the Year from 2007 through 2012, he was named "Howie Long's Toughest Man in the NFL" following the 2007 season, due in part to his legendary run downfield at Philadelphia after getting his helmet knocked off by a would-be tackler.
 
Witten and his wife Michelle live in the Dallas area with their two sons, C.J. and Cooper, and their daughters, Landry and Hadley.
