Exit Interview: Stanford Keglar

A starter for most of his four seasons on the field at Purdue, Stanford Keglar became a key contributor for the Boilermakers after coming to West Lafayette as more of a physical specimen than finished football product.

Nonetheless, he broke into the starting lineup as a redshirt freshman in 2004, highlighting that season by clinching a desperately needed win over Ohio State by intercepting a pass thrown by future Heisman winner Troy Smith and deflected by future Big Ten star Ted Ginn.

A team captain as a senior, Keglar remained a starter for the majority of the next three seasons, finishing with 250 tackles.

An athlete in every sense of the term in high school, Keglar also stood out for Pike High School in Indianapolis in the rarely seen sports trio of football, track and swimming.

In track, he ran the 4x100-meter relay and was one of the top discus throwers in Indiana.

He swam the 100-meter butterfly, 50-meter freestyle and a pair of relays.

On Sunday, the former Boilermaker linebacker was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the draft Sunday, with the 134th overall selection.
