Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week: Football Player Kahlil Keys

Kahlil Keys was given an opportunity vs. Columbia this past Saturday and ran (very far) with it. Keys ran the ball for 137 yards on 10 carries, including a school record-breaking 94-yard touchdown run, in Yale's 53-12 win over Columbia. Keys is this week's Total Mortgage Athlete Spotlight of the Week.

Keys came to Yale as a top-recruit after an impressive season at Choate Rosemary Hall, where he earned All-New England honors and was named the team's most valuable player. Keys turned down an offer to play for FBS UNLV to attend Yale. In his first couple of days on campus, Keys opened many eyes with his speed and athleticism. However, just a few weeks before the opening game, Keys suffered a knee injury that sidelined him for the rest of the season. After countless hours at physical therapy, Keys got back on the field for his sophomore campaign, and carried the ball 10 times for 66 yards on the season.

This fall, Keys is making a name for himself. He has rushed the ball 25 times for 211 yards and a score, averaging 8.4 yards per carry. 
 
In addition to his success on the field, Keys volunteers at "No Closed Doors" in New Haven. No Closed Doors is a case-management agency run entirely by student volunteers, where low-income and homeless clients in New Haven can receive assistance with housing searches, public benefits applications, resumes, writing, and much more. He also worked for the National Youth Sports Program camp, a free program that incorporates sports instruction with educational classes for all children 9-16 living in the greater New Haven area.
 
Come see Kahlil and company take on the Brown Bears this Saturday in the historic Yale Bowl at noon.
