Keith is the son of Yaneth and Darrell Moore. He is their only child. His close family includes his grandmother, Myrlin Moore; aunt, Yolanda Moore; and cousin, Amaris Brown.
Keith has played football since the age of eight. He played for the Westside Cubs from the age of 8 to 14. Instead of playing on the JV team in his freshman year in high school, he played his last year for the Cubs at the age of fourteen and was moved straight up to varsity in his sophomore year. He started at free safety and was the back up quarterback for Oak Park High School in his sophomore year but ended the season starting both ways in the last four games. After going 2-7 at Oak Park, he transferred to Cass Tech in his junior year where he was a two-year starter. At Cass, Keith threw for over 4,000 yards and ran for over 1,500. Keith was responsible for 52 passing touchdowns and 19 rushing. He was named to the All City team, All Metro team and was the Detroit Free Press All State first team Quarterback. Keith led his team (12-1) to the semi-final game, a 24-21 loss. Their 2010 finish was the first time a team in the PSL Division 1 had reached the semi-finals in history. Keith was named to the All American offensive team at the National US Army All American camp and was the first PSL quarterback to make the first team in All State.
Keith also ran track and made All City and all state in the 400 meters and was part of an All City and All State 4×200 meter relay team. As a junior, Keith was the city, district, and regional Champ in the 400 meters and was also second in the state in the 400. As a junior his 4×200 team was also the city, district, and regional champs and finished third in the state meet.
Keith thanked, “my parents, grandmother, aunt, cousin, teachers, and peers in school for supporting me through everything I have done so far.” He also thanked, “Every coach who took time out for me to help out with whatever I needed” and “all of my teammates, ‘Bros,’ for their encouragement and support. They made me better every day and helped me reach my full potential.”
