Remembering Paul Keyes (ODU'84) by Phil Stanton
Nov. 4, 2012
Coach Keyes, Keydog, Paul. However you knew him, Paul Keyes was unique.
I was fortunate to interact with Coach Keyes in multiple ways. I got to know him as a competitor when I was the Sports Information Director at the University of Richmond. Coach Keyes was as competitive as anyone on the field during a game, but was extremely amicable before and after the contests. He loved to talk baseball, whether it was with his own staff, visiting staffs, umpires, scouts, members of the media.
I worked with Coach Keyes while Director of Athletic Communications at VCU. It was great to watch him on a daily basis. But he treated me the same as he had when I was with the enemy, the Spiders.
