"King" Kelly Coleman passed awayIn my opinion, the greatest player to ever play high school basketball in Kentucky, "King" Kelly Coleman passed away today. I was at a gathering in Wayland two weeks after the state tournament. About 50 of us got together because Kelly was not doing well. Late in my career I had the pleasure of spending some time with him at several events.
My heart is filled with prayers for all those in Wayland and around the state.
I do not know what the arrangements are at this time.Advertisement
