Shiloh Keo (born December 17, 1987) is a professional football safety who is currently a member of the Cincinnati Bengals. He was selected in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. He played college football for the University of Idaho in the Western Athletic Conference.

High school career[edit]

Keo is a 2006 graduate of Archbishop Murphy High School in Everett, where he played under head coach Terry Ennis. He transferred from Woodinville in 2004, following his sophomore year. As a senior, he played in the 2005 2A football state championship, but AMHS lost to Pullman High School.

College career[edit]

Keo was pressed into service as a true freshman at Idaho in 2006 under head coach Dennis Erickson. He was the Vandals' team MVP as a sophomore in 2007 under first-year head coach Robb Akey. Injured early during the 2008 season, Keo redshirted and returned as a first team all-WAC conference safety as a junior in 2009 and 2nd team all-WAC in 2010.[1]

NFL career[edit]

Keo battled with Ed Reed for the starting safety position in the Texans' secondary. Keo started the first two games of the season, notching 7 tackles and 8 yards rushing after a successful fake punt against the San Diego Chargers in the season opener.[2] The Texans began increasing Keo's involvement in the defense in week 6 and by week 9, he was the starting safety.[3] After Reed was cut by the Texans on November 12, 2013, Keo was officially listed as the team's starting safety. Keo was released on September 30, 2014. Keo signed a future contract with the Bengals and joined the team on February 2, 2015.
