Records for career touchdowns, points and all-purpose yards.... keyes is a member of the college football hall of fame... back in 1987 he was voted purdue's all-time greatest player, when the program celebrated their 100-year anniversary... baseball is a way of life for the hannahs family.... with dad mitch coaching at isu and his sons derek and kaleb playing d1 baseball.... but this weekend this baseball family will experience something they never have before on the diamond... << former west vigo star kaleb hannahs has stepped in and started all 21 games this season at valpo.... the freshman is batting .286, with a homer and eight rbi....his dad mitch has been impressed with the way his son has handled playing college baseball.
