Born in Tennessee and raised in Elizabethton, Jason Witten was a high school All-American before his shining football career at the University of Tennessee. Jason was drafted in the third round by the Dallas Cowboys in 2003 where he has made an impact every season since. Last February after the 2005-06 season, Jason went to his second consecutive Pro Bowl and became the first tight end in club history to post back-to-back 65-plus catch seasons. He finished third in the NFC (sixth in the NFL) among tight ends in receptions (66), fourth in the NFC (seventh in the NFL) among tight ends in receiving yards (757) and fourth in the NFC (tied for sixth in the NFL) among tight ends with a career-high tying six touchdown catches. Jason and his wife, Michelle, are very active in the Dallas community donating their time and resources to several area charities.
