Wow, RIP Keith. We went to school together in New Jersey. Grew up in the same town. In band together [I was on various instruments (teacher had me playing almost every instrument in 7th grade), and Keith was on the drums. I think he played the big drum that you carry in front of you. He liked to tease and I was sometimes in his sights for teasing. Didn’t like him in 7th grade but that’s 7th grade. I got over it. I moved on to another school not long afterwards and he started his football career in Roselle Park. He set up a nice football career for himself in high school, very focused on it, so when he was signed up after high school getting splashed across all the local papers. [ok, there was one local paper… wait, I think they stopped printing it by then, so it was across several *not* quite local papers], I wasn’t surprised at all. I’d hear about his career now and again through various channels, always rooted for him. Good to see a local boy done good and he did good. My condolences to his family and friends. If I remember right, his faith was a big part of who he was so I have no doubt he left here knowing he was going to be alright. RIP Keith!
