RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri was recently reunited with his jersey from his high school playing days in South Dakota, thanks to a coach in Texas and a little bit of luck. The Rapid City Journal reports that high school football coach Steve Svendson first came across Vinatieri's Rapid City Central jersey many years ago. Svendson says he held onto the jersey for years, and decided to return the jersey during a game in November. Vinatieri says the gesture brought him back to his roots.
