Sam Keller, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound, quarterback from Danville (CA) San Ramon Valley (SRV) is considered one of the nations top signal callers. Keller continues to work hard in the off season and he has his eye's set set on a rematch with good friend and fellow blue-chip quarterback Kyle Wright.

"Kyle and I live about 10 minutes apart." Keller said. "We're friends and there's no jealousy from either of us. We both understand that we're going to be playing D-1 football.

"We (SRV) lost to Kyle's team last year 38-34. I drove my team from our 30-yard line down to their 10-yard line and then I threw an interception. I swear that guy got so lucky. I ended up 24-41 for 444 yards and five touchdowns in that game. I'm looking forward to the rematch this season.

As far as his recruitment goes, Keller may end up in the Midwest.

"Michigan and Notre Dame are my favorites. Illinois is also up there with Kansas State, Arizona State, Colorado and Miami (Fla.).

"I'm not going to camp this summer. I'm going to concentrate on getting bigger, faster and stronger. I want to commit before the season, hopefully in July.

"I know what the important things are when looking at schools. Education and a strong alumni network are what my parents talk about. I want to go to a school that best fits my strengths as a quarterback.

"I'm looking for a school with a West Coast offense. I'm looking for a place where I get along with the players. Lastly I'm looking for a school with coaches that will develop my skills as a quarterback."

Sam Keller threw for 2,832 yards and 28 touchdowns as a junior. He was named a Student Sports junior All-American. He was also a Cal-Hi 2nd team all-state selection in 2001.

Who will get Keller's commitment in July? Will it be Michigan? Notre Dame? Or will Keller decide to stay on the West Coast? Stay Tuned!
