Simon Keith holds the distinction of being the first athlete in the world to play a professional sport after undergoing a heart transplant.
Keith was just 21 when, in July of 1986, he received the heart of a 17 year-old boy.

After playing two seasons with the Rebels, Keith garnered many honors including being named the Student-Athlete of Year for the Conference as well as voted as USA's Most Courageous Athlete. After his senior season, Keith was named the Most Valuable Player at the Senior Bowl and was drafted first overall into the Major Indoor Soccer League, just three years after his heart transplant.
