Chittwood was a pioneer of what many would say is the modern game of Kansas City High School Football.

He graduated from Northeast High School in Kansas City in 1939 before enlisting in the military. After the war he entered Missouri Valley College where he was a multi-sport star.

After graduation he moved to Raytown where he was hired as a teacher and head football coach in 1947. During his first 15 years his teams combined for a 113-26-10 record. When he retired in 1981 he had a 224-100-13 mark. His teams would win five conference championships from 1947-1953 and he finished with 12 conference titles. Chittwood passed away in 2001.
