GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 28, ISSUE 3 32 42ND-ANNUAL MOLLENKOPF-KEYES CLASSIC FEBRUARY 16, 2018 The annual Mollenkopf-Keyes Classic honors Jack Mollenkopf and All-American Leroy Keyes, paying homage to a pair of Purdue and College Football Hall of Famers, while raising funds to support our student-athlete scholarships. As the Boilermakers' legendary head coach, Mollenkopf took Purdue to the 1967 Rose Bowl, produced 14 All- Americans and sent numerous players into the professional ranks. Keyes − known as one of "Jack's Boys" − played for Mollenkopf from 1966 to 1968. He became the first player in Purdue history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season and was a consensus All-American in both 1967 and 1968, finishing third and second in the Heisman Trophy balloting respectively. The 2018 classic will take place at the Quail West Golf and Country Club located in Naples, Florida. Brunch begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 16, and will feature Keyes, former Boilermaker and current Atlanta Falcons' starter Ricardo Allen, athletics director Mike Bobinski and head football coach Jeff Brohm.
