The All-Metro Conference selection’s father is Canadian — and also an ice hockey fan. The dad grew up playing ice hockey in Vancouver and follows the Canucks. When his son was 9, he signed him up for ice hockey. Killeen later became a two-time all-star in the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League.

Eastlake doesn’t field an ice hockey team, so Killeen took up roller hockey. As a junior, he led Eastlake to a 24-0 regular-season record and was selected first-team all-conference.

Killeen has made the principal’s honor roll all four years, has a 4.44 GPA and earned a 1440 on the SAT. He is taking six weighted classes this year for a total of eight AP classes and five honors classes. He favors AP economics and plans to study business administration or economics in college, get his MBA and parlay that into a career in sports business. Killeen is considering Minnesota, SDSU, UCLA and UC Berkeley and would like to play club ice hockey in college.

For the past two years, Killeen has volunteered at Eastlake Church with its children’s program.
