Whatever happened to...
Keith Elias ’94?

Star running back and captain of the 1993 football team, a two-time first-team All-American, and 1993 Ivy League Player of the Year, Keith Elias ’94 left Princeton having shattered 21 University records — a dozen of which still stand.

After graduation, Elias played for five years in the NFL, for the New York Giants and the Indianapolis Colts. He ended his sports career with a brief season in the Xtreme Football League.

Though he expected that playing in the NFL would be a dream come true, Elias called it the “most disappointing experience of my life.” Since leaving professional football, Elias spends his free time as an inspirational speaker and a volunteer with Christian and youth outreach programs — especially the Christian and Missionary Alliance and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He is vice president of development for the medical company Hemo Concepts Inc., in Eatontown, N.J. end of article
