Koets was born in Santa Ana, California, and was a 6th round New York Giants draft pick in 2007. He was on the Giants’ SuperBowl XLII Championship team in 2008. Koets was a senior scholar athlete at Foothill High School, and played his college ball for Oregon State where he was a semi-finalist for the Draddy Award given to the nation’s top scholar athlete.
