LIBERTY — Keyshawn King, a senior at Liberty High School, signed a track and field scholarship with Stanford University on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

King chose Stanford over offers from Notre Dame, Brown, Georgia Tech, Wofford and others.

The two time State Champion will be competing at the college level in the triple jump and Long jump. He visited the school in California back on Sept. 30 and met with the coaches and track team.

When King was asked why he chose Stanford he said “I was always taught to use track as a platform to get a higher education. Stanford was the best fit for me academically and athletically.”

King also had a message for the Liberty student body which attended his signing ceremony: “Don’t let anyone tell you just because you are from Liberty you can’t go anywhere,” he said. “I would not be where I am or who I am without this place.”
