Brandon KeithSALT RIVER PIMA-MARICOPA INDIAN COMMUNITY—He’s been a Buffalo, a Golden Norseman, a Sooner, a Panther, a Cardinal, a Viking and a Bear.

Now, Brandon Keith will take flight as an Eagle and the new head coach of Salt River High School’s 8- man football team.

“What’s most exciting about Coach Keith is his purposeful intention to share his personal experiences with his new team,” said SRHS Athletic Director Brandon Tauscher. “His playing and coaching resume blows you away on its own, but how he came to witness his success is what truly separates our new coach. Stories and lessons on perseverance and commitment reach beyond the game of football and are something that will stay with players long after the Friday night lights begin to dim.”

Keith, 32, will begin practicing with his new team in early August. As members of the Canyon Athletic Association, the Eagles, who went 5-4 last season and made it to the playoffs for the first time in eight years, will play their first game Friday, Sept. 1. The team boasts 12 returning players.
