Nobody had ever questioned the heart of former UNLV standout Simon Keith on the soccer pitch until July 7, 1989, in Wichita, Kan. Al Miller, then general manager of the Cleveland Crunch of the Major Indoor Soccer League, approached Keith at the Budweiser All-Star Senior Bowl for top American college soccer players and cut to the chase.
“Word is you have some kind of heart problem?”
Keith responded by fist-bumping his own chest.
“One in,” he said, “one out.”
Keith then scored a goal and assisted on two others.
One in. Two more in.
