From ASeaofBlue.com: “News broke this afternoon that Kentucky great Wallace “Wah Wah” Jones passed away. Jones, who had just celebrated his 88th birthday, passed away Sunday morning. What Jones accomplished in his athletic career six decades ago would qualify him for superhero status today. Jones played baseball, football, basketball, and track at the University of Kentucky between 1945-1949. Jones was a member of Adolph Rupp’s famous “Fabulous Five”, and he was a member of teams that won two national championships. He was also a member of the football teams coached by Paul “Bear”Bryant. In both football and basketball he was an All-American, and is the only UK athlete to have his jersey retired in two different sports.”
