It’s not often you get to watch an NFL game and see an alum from your high school.

How about two?

Mike Kafka, a 2005 graduate of St. Rita, played quarterback for the Vikings and was 7-of-10 passing for 66 yards, including [WATCH] a 34-yard TD pass. Kafka is trying to make the 53-man roster as a backup to Teddy Bridgewater and Shaun Hill.

Matt Conrath, a 2007 St. Rita alum, played defensive tackle for the Steelers and recorded two tackles. The fourth-year player was acquired from the Rams after last season and figures to be valuable in the Steelers’ 3-4 scheme.

The Vikings won 14-3.
