Frank Ramsey pulled in a single championship title for UK. He beat that by six with the Boston Celtics in the NBA. While Ramsey's amazing career with the Celtics may seem to overshadow his years at UK to fans outside Kentucky, he said his time in college prepared him for life.
Ramsey, who currently lives in Madisonville, Ky., said that the structure and coaching he received at UK, as well as the tradition within the school, helped shape his life and career and will continue to do so for Wildcat players to come.
“My experience as being a Kentuckian and going to the University of Kentucky has been great,” Ramsey said. “I highly recommend it to anyone.”
Walter Cornett, of Glendale, Kentucky, is the owner and operator of Walter's Wildcat World. He founded WildcatWorld.com in 1998 making it one of the oldest Kentucky basketball fan sites in operation today.
