A former star Ambridge High School football player will spend eight years and four months in prison for robbing $5,548 from the Huntington Bank on Merchant Street in Ambridge, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

Keith Fisher, 47, of Baden pleaded guilty in October to the June 14 robbery. Fisher was a standout running and defensive back who graduated in 1984 and went to Michigan State University on a scholarship.

Over the past 25 years, he's been arrested and convicted of several crimes including theft, robbery and drug charges, according to state records.

U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti also sentenced Fisher to three years of probation.
