Three outstanding basketball players and a legendary fan will be the four members of the 2012 Allen County-Scottsville Athletic Hall-of-Fame class. Allen County basketball standouts Wayne Calvert and Norm Weaver, Scottsville hoopster Dicky Keffer, and long time fan Winford Jones will be honored at the induction ceremony scheduled for Friday, August 31.
Wayne Calvert is a 1962 graduate of Allen County High School. During his high school career, Calvert scored a then school record 1,914 points. During his senior season, Calvert averaged 16.6 points-per-game to help lead Allen County to their fourth KHSAA (Kentucky High School Athletic Association) state tournament. The Patriots only loss during a 31-1 season was in the state semi-finals---the best finish ever by an Allen County basketball team. Calvert was selected as an All-State player and Kentucky All-Star.
Norm Weaver graduated from Allen County in 1964. Weaver scored 1,061 points and grabbed 700 rebounds in his junior and senior years at Allen County and was part of the Patriot team that won three consecutive region titles in 1962, 1963 and 1964. As a senior, Weaver averaged 19.6 points and 15 rebounds and led the Patriots to a 28-6 record. In three state tournament games in 1964, Weaver scored 51 points and grabbed 34 rebounds. He was named to the state all-tournament team, chosen Southern Kentucky Player-of-the-Year and selected to the All-State second team.
Dicky Keffer was a member of the last graduating class at Scottsville High School in 1974. During his career with the Pointers, Keffer scored 2,054 to finish as the school’s second leading scorer of all time. During his senior season, Keffer averaged 21.1 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. For his career, the sharp-shooting guard shot around 86% from the foul line and 50.4% from the field Keffer also guided the 1974 Pointers to a third consecutive 15th District title and a runner-up finish in the Fourth Region tournament. During three seasons with the Pointers, Keffer helped lead Scottsville High to a 79-18 record.
Winford Jones has long been regarded as the school’s number one fan. From the mid 1960s until shortly before his death in 2000, Jones was a fixture at football, basketball, and baseball games. Despite his inability to speak, Jones encouraged hundreds of Patriot athletes from his spot on the sidelines or seat on the bench.
