A little background on Keith, he was the first person to play professional sports after undergoing a heart transplant. At age 19 he was diagnosed with myocarditis; at age 21 in 1986 he got a heart from a 17 year old who had died from a brain aneurysm while playing soccer, played at UNLV, and was the first overall pick in the MISL draft in 1989, playing for Cleveland for a couple years along with a few years in the Canadian Soccer League. He is now COO of the Nevada Donor Network, CEO of the Simon Keith Foundation, and is one of the longest-living people to undergo a heart transplant. His story was recently subject of an ESPN E:60 story as well.
