2017 season wrapup: Keyton led Cobb County in receptions (59) for the second consecutive season, finishing with 1,298 yards and 16 touchdowns for a team that reached the quarterfinals despite its starting quarterback (Harrison Bailey) missing seven games with an injury. He has career totals of 140 receptions, 2,665 yards and 24 touchdowns. Keyton is rated as the No. 20 wide receiver nationally.

School's first Super 11 since: Derrick Tinsley in 2000.

What's also interesting: Keyton can become the first player in the highest classification to have 4,000 career receiving yards since Stan Rome in 1973.
