MONROE - For a junior at Monroe High School, John Keizer has an unusual hobby. In his spare time, Keizer builds suits of medieval plate armor. For the past year-and-a-half, the student has used metalworking equipment to manufacture pieces of armor that he says are as accurately constructed as possible.
