SAN PABLO, Calif. - He came to the Oakland Elite 11 with the reputation as one of the top 2014 quarterbacks in Northern California and Keller Chryst backed it up.
The Palo Alto, Calif., quarterback has great size, an outstanding arm and comes from a rare football pedigree.
His father, Geep Chryst, is the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach and that means Chryst gets to talk football with one of the best minds in the game.

"I didn't really think there was any pressure at all coming in," Chryst said.
"I was focused on coming out and getting better and I really didn't think about being younger. I just wanted to compete. When you go to college and the NFL it doesn't matter how old you are you just have to play.
"My dad coached me all the time on just the little things. We'd come home maybe after dinner or something like that and talk. He comes out to the field with me sometimes but it's more like the little things and I'm slowly picking them up."
Chryst, who threw for 2,165 yards with 28 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his sophomore season, said recruiting has only started to pick up and he doesn't have any early offers.
The Northern California quarterback has received interest from USC, Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State and others and after his performance on Friday many other programs could get involved.
Chryst was one of the top overall quarterbacks at the Oakland Elite 11 which featured five-star USC commit Max Browne and four-star Alabama pledge Cooper Bateman.
"I don't have any offers right now," Chryst said. "It's too early. All the schools are good."
