Inola’s Josh Keller - Spotlight Presented By Northeast Tech
By Travis Sloat
A simple thing like being quarantined hasn’t done anything to dampen the spirits of Inola senior wide receiver Josh Keller.
“The season is going well,” he said. “We just got a big win against Salina. Morale is high, but we just got the news we’re quarantined. We’re hoping we only miss one game, but the whole team is ready to get back out there.”
Keller is also heavily involved in the Pre-Engineering program at Northeast Tech, and he said his work there is preparing him for his future as an Aerospace Engineer.
“It’s helped me out a lot with my technical and mechanical skills,” he said. “I haven’t made a full out plan for anything after high school, but I know that’s the direction I want to go.”
As for the football season and his legacy at Inola High School, Keller said he did have that mapped out.
“I would like to personally play each game better than the last,” he said. “I like being a role model a lot, and the younger group we have here is very skilled and coachable. Some of the things I’m showing them are how to work as a team better, how to be a better receiver, and route running.”
In his free time, Keller said he enjoys playing WarZone with his friends, and mentioned jokingly that sometimes he’ll do his homework as well. He said he spends a lot of time working on his football game, but most of the time is spent with his girlfriend.
