Following in his father and brother's footsteps, Treyson Keating found a love for basketball. 

"Growing up that's all I've ever done, all I really love to do," said Treyson. "It's where I can meet new people, and just have a lot of fun with my friends and family."

Playing under his father, Tim Keating, Treyson worked hard to earn a spot on the Pleasant Valley basketball team.

"I tell all my sons that I have to have a reason to play them, so to watch them work hard at their craft and get better and improve is just a pleasure." said Tim.

Treyson is a power forward and center. He helped lead his father's team a state title in 2018 alongside his older brother. 

"He's very cerebral," said Tim. "He obvisouly has height, but he understands the game. He's very smart, and in addition to his offensive stuff he is a very unselfish player that has a knack for finding open guys." 

Not only is Treyson a great player on the court, but a great student in the classroom. He earned a 4.5 GPA in his final year as a Viking. Both traits earned him a spot at UC Santa Cruz. 

"I'm proud of all my sons," said Tim. "I just like the way they're starting to turn out. I just want them to be good human beings, but I am proud of Trey and that he qualified to get into UC Santa Cruz." 

"I'm very excited, but at the same time, sad, said Treyson. "I have to leave my family and all my friends that I've known my entire life, but I'm also excited because it's a place where I can not only focus on my athletics but also academics."
