How'd he get to the Blue™?
Kevin Keane is one of the several Junior College transfers that have graced the Blue over the past several years. Keane started at center in addition to his long-snapping duties at Ohio Wesleyan before a season-ending injury sidelined him for the rest of the year. However, his little time on the field must have been impressive for Bronco coaches as he worked his way up to reserve long-snapper on the Bronco depth chart.
Kevin Keane - Calvin Klein. Just say it real fast-like and you'll see what I mean.
Haha. You did it, right? Gotcha.
Mr. Fast & Furious.
Reserve long-snapper made four appearances in his debut season with the Broncos. Keane handled long-snapping duties against Michigan State, San Diego State, Hawaii, and Washington in the Maaco Bowl Las Vegas.
2013 is looking to be a good year if you're a long-snapper for the Boise State Broncos. Why, you ask? Because there is only one on the team, and his name is
Calvin Klein Kevin Keane. Reserve duties plagued Keane in 2012, but there's a good chance Keane will get plenty of playing time this season. On the other hand though, the Broncos don't exactly punt often, so his time may still be somewhat limited. There's a good chance that Keane will handle all the long-snapping duties over the next two seasons for the Broncos, barring any injury (knock on wood) or other unforeseen events.
Completely made up fact
The nickname Calvin Klein was actually earned at the young age of 17. It was then that Keane modeled in his first (and last according to him - fat chance!) boxer brief season spread for Calvin Klein.
