Hank Keighley is a defensive end from Kettering Alter High School. He was named the 2007 Ohio Division IV Defensive Player of the Year, and he is a commitment to the University of Toledo 2008 recruiting class.

Hank Keighley (6-4, 225) was named the 2007 Ohio Division IV Defensive Player of the Year after a successful senior season at Archbishop Alter High School in Kettering, OH. He was also named the Greater Catholic League North Player of the Year in 2007.

Keighley committed to the University of Toledo after visiting campus back in the first week of November.

Hank led Alter with 62 solo tackles and 23 tackles for loss. Alter's defense gave up just a mere 71 yards per game, leading the team to a 10-0 record in the regular season and a final poll ranking of 3rd in Ohio Division IV.

After winning their opening round playoff game 33-0 behind Keighley's three sacks and five tackles for loss, Alter lost to Coldwater in the Division IV Regional Semifinals to finish the season 11-1.

Keighley was named 2nd Team All-Area by the Dayton Daily News as a junior in 2006, and then 1st Team All-Area as a senior in 2007. He was also named 1st Team Divion IV All-Ohio by the Associated Press in 2007.

"I think my biggest strengths are my speed and my lateral quickness," Keighley told the Dayton Daily News.

Hank was recruited to Toledo be assistant coach Mark Rhea.
