We’re saddened by the recent passing of Kentucky basketball legend Frank Ramsey. Frank led his Madisonville Maroons to back to back appearances in the 1948 and 1949 state tournaments and was a 1st Team All-State selection in ’49.
The 6-foot-3 guard was known as a fierce competitor and helped lift Kentucky to an NCAA Championship in 1951. He went on to play for the Boston Celtics in the NBA and was a key contributor to seven championships for the storied professional franchise.
Frank was inducted in the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame in 2014. Our thoughts and prayers to his family.
