Lexington Lafayette High School
Dirk Minniefield joins his former Lafayette coach Jock Sutherland in the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame. Dirk would lead the Generals to a 36-1 season and a state championship in 1979. His flashy all-around game was well suited for the fast and furious Lafayette team that was but a win away from going undefeated. Dirk was three time All-State player, 1979 Mr. Basketball, and an All-American his senior year. The 1979 Lafayette team was “one for the ages”. A charismatic coach, an All-American guard, and a team with flair are rarely seen at the high school level. Dirk Minniefield would go on to a successful basketball career at the University of Kentucky and will always live in the hearts and minds of Kentucky basketball fans. Welcome, Dirk Minniefield, to the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.
