My dad always told me to make the best of any opportunity because you never knew when the next one would come around. That’s exactly what I would think of when I watched Keith Tandy.
This kid was buried, unable to crack the starting lineup in four years. Yet, due to an injury to Chris Conte, he sees action and becomes absolutely dominant. Tandy ended back to back games with interceptions during the five game win streak, becoming an absolute ball hawk down the stretch.
The most impressive – and surprising – thing about Tandy is his drive for knowledge. Players and coaches regularly name Tandy when speaking about the most intelligent player on the team, citing his desire and drive to one day be a coach.
Before training camp, I may have predicted Keith Tandy to be the starter. However, I never dreamed he would’ve played to the level he did in 2016.
