Keegan Kelly’s resilience fuels comeback after multiple devastating injuries

Junior midfielder Keegan Kelly dribbles the ball up the field during the Aztecs’ 3-2 loss against the Detroit Mercy Tigers on Sept. 9 at the SDSU Sports Deck.

There’s that famous line, “turn your setbacks into comebacks,” and San Diego State junior midfielder Keegan Kelly is a prime example.

Last season after playing the first seven games for the Aztecs, Kelly suffered a devastating foot injury in the first half against UNLV on Sept. 24 that ended his season.

This was Kelly’s second career-threatening injury in back-to-back seasons. He never got the chance to play his sophomore year because of an injury that required surgery.
