As a junior, Keller established new school records in the 100 yard dash and the 440 yard dash while earning silver medals in the NCAA Regional Championships in both the 100 and 200 yard dashes.  After a great indoor season in his senior year, Keller never had the chance to compete in the spring season because the Class of ’67 graduated in February due to the War in Vietnam.  Keller did compete as an amateur for the next five season, earning medals at different national competitions.
