Kevin Feterik (born September 14, 1977) is a former American and Canadian football quarterback. He played for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.[1] He played college football at BYU.[2] As a senior in college he was a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award.[3]

A Roman Catholic, Feterik chose to attend the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints-owned BYU due to its esteemed quarterback program. As with many other non-Mormon players who have played for the Cougars, Feterik's elevation to a starting role (particularly at quarterback]] caused some consternation among the team's predominantly Mormon fanbase.

Feterik remains among the most controversial choices for a CFL starting quarterback in the 21st century. The team was owned at the time by Feterik's father Michael, who insisted that his son get the position. This was met with predictable ire from both fans and the team's popular and successful head coach/general manager Wally Buono. Buono left for the BC Lions on account of these differences after the 2002 season. Although the elder Feterik owned the team until 2005, Kevin Feterik was released at his own request in 2003 on account of the ongoing controversy.
