Keith Stokes, a wide receiver with the Philadelphia Soul in the Arena Football League, recently took time to do a Question and Answer session with The Capital Sports Report. His interview is about his sports career and views.

TCSR: Why did you choose to attend Georgia Military Academy?

KS: “I wanted to go to a big school. I had the grades to go, but I was too small to get a full scholarship. They would only give me a full scholarship if I went there to kick, but I didn’t want to kick. I used to kick in high school.”

TCSR: What did it mean to you to be an All-American there?

KS: “I had great coaches, and had a great opportunity to do my best. That’s all I could ask.”

TCSR: Why did you choose to attend East Carolina University?

KS: “It was great! I got the opportunity to play in front of big colleges and big stadiums with a lot of fans. I did some pretty good things there.”

TCSR: What was it like playing for ECU head football coach Steve Logan when you were playing there?

KS: “It was great playing for coach. He knew what he was doing, and was a father figure to his players. No complaints playing there.”

TCSR: Could you talk about playing in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Alouettes, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Toronto Argonauts, and Edmonton Eskimos?

KS: “When you love playing football, it really doesn’t matter who you are playing for. The CFL was my home for many years.”

TCSR: How does being a wide receiver, running back, and kick returner in the Canadian Football League relate to being a wide receiver and kick returner in the Arena Football League with the fields entirely different?

KS: “I’ve been doing it all my life, so there’s no big difference in my mind.”

TCSR: Could you talk about playing with the Manchester Wolves?

KS: “I had to get used to the walls. I’m still not used to the walls in the Arena game, so when I played there and play here, I have to adjust.”

TCSR: You previously played in France. Could you talk about returning to football after a two-year hiatus to sign with the Philadelphia Soul?

KS: “It was close to home. I didn’t want to travel. I want to play close to where I live.”
