Claude Keith King, Sr., was a member of East Carolina's athletics program for four years from 1951 to 1955.

King is remembered most for his great play in football. An all-conference performer in 1954, King's 45.7-yard punting average ranks second all-time for highest season punting average behind Andrew Bayes.

Also in that year, King set an East Carolina record that still stands today as he booted an 88-yard punt against Appalachian State.

King also participated in golf at East Carolina from 1952-1955.
