Diamond Talk: Pat Kehoe, QB, University of Delaware | A Blue Hen with a huge arm

Pat Kehoe lost his three big targets last year but he has a new target in town and I think he is destine for a huge year.

Pat Kehoe was banged up last year at the end of the season, but he is back and ready for his fifth year with the Blue Hens.

Kehoe is a 6-foot-4, 235-pound fifth-year senior, whose knee is healthy again, he’s lost 20 pounds and he’s ready to go.

Kehoe is a left-handed quarterback who has a huge arm. He is very athletic and will kill you with his feet as well. He is a great leader and has a great personality. He was named a captain by his teammates this year.

Pat was a four year starter in high school at Cheshire Academy and led his team to an impressive 32-4 record. He was the New England Offensive Player of the Year and dominated his senior year throwing 34 touchdowns. In his career he finished with 7,340 passing yards and 88 touchdowns. He would land with Delaware after his senior year.

In 2015 and 2016, Kehoe did not play. In 2016, he was the Blue Hens third string quarterback.

In 2017, Kehoe battled Joe Walker and JP Caruso and played in one game.

In 2018, he had an impressive season starting all 12 games. He completed 147 passes for 2,075 yards and 17 touchdowns.

Returning quarterback Pat Kehoe will be on the lookout for new targets after losing Charles Scarff, Joe Walker, and Vinny Papale to the NFL. The good thing is the Blue Hens landed him a very solid player in Penn State transfer Dae’Lun Darien, who was a former linebacker converted to wide out.

Darien has the frame necessary to have been a linebacker in the Big Ten, at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds—but that’s also the kind of build customary of an NFL possession receiver, which is exactly what he will be for Kehoe and the Blue Hens.
