  Senior Dillon Keefe has been accepted to Chapman University for his academic achievements and outstanding athletic performances on the football field. He is still currently in the decision process of committing to the local college, but will most likely be attending Chapman U. Keefe’s twelve years of being a football player have certainly paid off, although he is unsure if his other applications (California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo and University of California Santa Barbara) have been accepted yet. Keefe has not chosen or thought about a possible career after graduating from college, but had planned on studying business and environmental science.

  “I’m extremely excited to go to college,” Keefe says, reminiscing about his memories at El Mo. His favorite memory has been the time that the football team attended an away game at Rio Mesa with a bus full of Rowdy Rooters to cheer them on. He will definitely miss all of his teammates and friends, but especially the spirit of El Mo and the friendships he created while attending high school. Keefe’s development of close relationships to his teammates and coaches motivated him to strive to be the best that he could in order to not disappoint them. He believes that every person on the team did their job and each person was individually successful in the past season. Keefe’s goal for his last season in high school was to win the CIF championship, but as that goal was not met, he knew that they certainly improved from last year, a progression absolutely worthy and valid of being proud of.

To all the aspiring student athletes who look up to Keefe, he asks them to be very involved with school activities and make the best of every moment.
