Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Tyrone Keys, a member of the Super Bowl XX winning Bears who clinched the victory following the 1985 NFL season, was honored by the Mississippi Senate with a presentation of Senate Resolution 547 at the Mississippi Capitol on Thursday, April 5, 2018, for his community benevolence and football success. Keys played six seasons with Chicago and went on to play with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Diego Chargers. In high school, Keys was a member of the Callaway High School Chargers of Jackson, Mississippi, who in 1975 won all 12 of their regular season games and won the Big 8 Conference Championship. Keys was a standout defensive tackle at Mississippi State University for four years and made a last minute tackle in 1980 of Alabama’s quarterback that caused a fumble, giving Mississippi State a 6-3 victory over then number 1 ranked Alabama.
