The Purdue football family lost a legend earlier this month, when Leroy Keyes passed away at the age of 74. He is remembered as one of the best players ever to suit up for the Boilermakers.

Over the weekend, Purdue released a tribute video in honor of Keyes. He will be remembered not only as a great football player, but also a great person. The school did an outstanding job with the video:

Keyes played at Purdue from 1966-68 and was a dynamic playmaker for the Boilermakers. He totaled 2,090 rushing yards, 1,204 receiving yards and scored a total of 36 touchdowns during his time in West Lafayette.

In 1967 and 1968, Keyes was an All-American and finished third and second in the Heisman Trophy voting in those two seasons. After his career at Purdue came to a close, Keyes was the No. 3 overall selection in the 1969 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and one year with the Kansas City Chiefs.
