Having thrown for nearly four times as many yards as his SAT score, Pulaski quarterback Spencer Keith is a star on the field.
When PonyStampede.com spoke with Keith on Monday morning and learned his SAT verbal and math combined was 1240, we learned he was a star off the field as well. His test scores, coupled with a 4.42 GPA make Keith a true student-athlete—and he threw for 4800 yards last year, garnering all-conference, all-metro, and all-state honors.
However, the star from Little Rock, Arkansas has not received any official offers.
"I would really like to go to play somewhere in the Ivy League. I have been in contact with Harvard and UPenn, but I haven't received any offers. I just feel like that's where I can get the best education."
Keith is certainly right about the education, but he also noted that he would like to play Division 1 football, so he is at a certain juxtaposition right now.
His other top choices right now are Louisiana Tech, Kansas State, and SMU. He attended SMU camp this summer, even if he was late arriving. "I was late by a couple of hours because there was a time mix-up. Other than that, I really liked the facilities, especially the weight room. Oh, and Coach Jones has such a wide-open offense that would allow me to throw the ball, so I think I would be a good fit."
So where will Spencer Keith end up spending his college years? Only time will tell.
"I want to make my decision after the season. That way I can concentrate on what I need to do and get more looks in the process. We have a lot of returning starters, and I think we have what it takes to win state."
Keith plans on majoring in engineering or Pre-Med.
