Athlete of the week: Johnathan Keys enjoyed a stellar junior season on the gridiron

Published 9:30 am Saturday, December 2, 2023

Jonathan Keys had a junior year to remember for the LaGrange football team.

Despite a new quarterback, a plethora of other talented running backs on the teams and other changes on offense, Keys was able to build on a breakout sophomore campaign with an even stronger junior season. He finished with over 500  yards on the ground and 7 total touchdowns, which was tied for second on the team 

Keys is a versatile back who is both shifty in the open field and can muscle his way through tackles.

He was named to the Region 4-4A All-Region second team — the only Granger running back to do so. Big things will be expected of Keys next season as he forms a talented trio of Granger running backs alongside Malachi Fannin-Render and Caydin Thomas.
