Athletes Worth Watching | Keith Pendergrast

Keith’s interests in academics are varied. He lists ceramics, Spanish, and pre-calculus as his favorite classes, but he’s focused on just one thing in athletics: the world’s most popular sport, soccer.

An Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association All-Conference player at forward and center midfielder as a sophomore and junior, Keith was second team All-County in 2010, he led the C Conference in assists as a sophomore and in 2009 was named a Player to Watch by the Annapolis Capital.

He led the varsity squad in goals scored last year at ICUS. A member of the Honor Roll every quarter to date in high school, he plans to go to business school and play soccer. Keith is also in his school’s chapter of the National Spanish Honor Society.

To Keith, it all comes down to a simple aphorism, coined by Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.”

When he’s not scoring goals, Keith enjoys skiing and traveling with his parents, Leslie and Bob, and his younger sister, 12-year-old Stephanie. The family lives in Crownsville.
