Perhaps the apple really doesn’t fall far from the tree. But, for one Kentucky family, the basketball does. In fact, for dad and son the distance is exactly 84.7 miles. That’s the mileage from Highland Heights to Lexington.
And if you’re wondering – it’s the distance between Darrin Horn and son Walker.
Darrin is the basketball coach at Northern Kentucky University – son Walker plays basketball for – gulp – the University of Kentucky.
“He (Walker) wasn’t going to be a top Division I college basketball player,” coach Horn told the Northern Kentucky Tribune after a practice the other afternoon, “yet he (Walker) chose to be at the highest level of college basketball.”
