Palo Alto 'world traveler' finds a home with Stanford football

Original post made on Aug 13, 2014

Keller Chryst began attending Stanford games as soon as he moved to the area and went to almost every home game. At Palo Alto High School, he was tutored by volunteer coach Steve Bono, who played collegiately at UCLA and then professionally with the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Might've mentioned that Chryst will spend his freshman year as a redshirt while RS Frosh Ryan Burns--last year's forgotten phenom--suits up as 3rd-string QB. This is not high school football now. Good arms don't assure mastery of a complex playbook...nor assure the ability to handle a much faster game speed. A very experienced former Palo Alto QB, Jim Harbaugh, was savvy enough to know that a young recruit named Andrew Luck could benefit from a redshirt year. The hype can wait...everyone will benefit.

Macbaldy, I'm not seeing the hype in this article that you're referring to. No one is expecting Chryst to start during his freshman year, but most people agree he's a remarkable talent and has the chance to develop into an outstanding college quarterback, and that he's much more than just a strong arm. Let's see what happens.

By the way, it's not certain that he'll be a redshirt according to articles I've seen:

How many redshirt freshman have been decided? Inquiring about Dalton Schultz TE from Ut.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
