________________________________________ As if he needed to prove it any further, he's hands down the #1 player in 2011. In fact, he may be #1 regardless of class. His jumper needs to be fixed, but there's time for that and everything else he does is at such a high level that he can get away with it for now. On top of all of his skills and athleticism what really makes him so great, though, is that the kid is a straight up warrior.

Looking like Kentucky is going to be pretty tough to beat here.

Mychal Parker -- 2010 Wing

________________________________________ Will make sure I stop by once NBA Camp is over, but wanted to drop by and pass along this nugget. Mychal Parker informed me that he will likely be taking an unofficial visit to Kentucky next week.

He's a 6-foot-6 wing out of Miller School in Virginia.

Big time wing athlete who can put the ball in the hole off of slashing drives. However, he's a lot closer to 6-4 than he is 6-6.

Over the last three days 2009 inductees have been in the Lexington Area participating in various functions culminating in the formal induction into the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame at the Opera House in downtown Lexington on Friday. This is an event that started in 2003 and is designed to highlight players who played or coached at Kentucky universities and colleges and or have Kentucky ties and played or coached elsewhere. Including this year, there will have been 36-inductees of which, 17 played at the University of Kentucky. This years UK inductee is Joe Federspiel.

Federspiel played 10-years in the NFL the first nine of which, was with the New Orleans Saints and the last year with the Baltimore Colts. He was inducted in the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame in 1993.

"It's amazing some of the people that have been inducted into this hall," Federspiel said. "You got guys like Buddy Ryan, Romeo Crennel, Phyllis, Babe Parelli - this year we've got Jim Marshall (former Minnesota Viking "Purple People Eater"). I didn't knowhe was born in Danville (Kentucky), he didn't live there long but he from the state of Kentucky." Though he is on record as having been from Danville, actually Marshall said he was born in Williamsville not far from Parksville, which was about six-miles from Danville. and he went to the first grade in Columbus, Ohio.

Federspiel said - "What the orginization had done is open a lot of eyes of No. l, we've got a lot of athletes in the state of Kentucky. It give a kind of a background about all of these guys. I let's kids see that 'I can make to the big time, we John Jackson over there at Eastern (Kentucky University), who was one of the best offensive linemen to come along at that time. What it does is promotes football in general

Marty Moore is the present president of the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame, which was started by Frank Minnifield. Their plan is to build a All-Purpose stadium over in Nicholasville, Kentucky where the KPFHF's home base is located.
