PALO ALTO, Calif. -- When Keller Chryst first arrived at Palo Alto (Calif.) High School, he thought of himself as “just a guy from North Carolina.”

His father, Geep, had been hired by the San Francisco 49ers as a quarterbacks coach after working for the Carolina Panthers. Chryst was a freshman. He enrolled in time to go through spring football with the Vikings. By the time his sophomore season started, he was Palo Alto’s starting quarterback.
