This week promises to have some great sports history from our area both in content and photos. We also will do an update this week on how the Wayland gym renovation is coming along.
While those new articles are researched and put together, how about this July, 2017 short article on one of the greats from our area.
Last week we ran a photo of a Hazel Green Academy team. Dig it back out and give a looksee at Jimmy Hollon who was on that team
Hollon would go on from HGA to the Crimson Tide of Alabama as C.M. Newton mined eastern Ky for some great guards to get his program going in a hurry in the SEC.
This article is just a snippet of Hollon’s play. He would average 14 ppg at Alabama and hit nearly 80% of his free throws.
