Is this a surprise? Not really, Key is the son of David Key who helped Bishop Hartley to the Division IV state championship game in 1985, then took his talents to Michigan where he was a three year starter before spending two seasons in the NFL.
Now, Noah is the center of attention at Bishop Hartley and like his father has the Columbus (Ohio) program in the state title game.
With several Mid American programs now showing interest, a few bigger programs are also looking at Key as a defensive back.
Key had a big first half at running back rushing for 74 yards on 8 carries and 1 touchdown. However, while the numbers look good, it was a 60 yard touchdown run that showed his athletic ability.

Key finished the game with 138 yards and 2 touchdowns as Columbus Bishop Hartley defeated Chagrin Falls 34-13 to win the Division IV Championship.
