Rick Walters devotes much of his spare time to the history of Kentucky high school basketball.
He started out as a volunteer at the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame and now sits on its board of directors as a representative for the city.
Rik Hawkins, who went to high school with Walters at East Hardin, first asked him to be involved with the hall of fame. They’ve been friends since they were freshmen.
“Rick is a caring man about his family and committed to his community,” Hawkins said.
Because he is a big basketball fan and walked on for a year to play at Western Kentucky University, Walters was glad to help. He enjoys the history of the game.
“I like history, I don’t want things to be forgotten and want people to remember who and what laid the ground for the future opportunities,” he said.
