Wayland 'Gem'
Wayland 'Gem'



One of the coolest events for high school basketball occurred Dec. 16 when UK-bound Travis Perry and Lyon County journeyed deep into the east Kentucky mountains to play a throwback back at historic Wayland Gym, home of prep legend "King" Kelly Coleman. It was Perry who broke Coleman's 67-old-year record to become the state's new all-time scoring champion, and on this magical night Perry played on the same court once graced by the king himself.

The 20-page tribute includes reaction from Perry and his teammates about the opportunity, the project to rescue the gymnasium from ruin, a look at the history of the building built in 1937 and its many quirky features, and a deep look at the legend himself, "King" Kelly Coleman.

Cost is just $5 ($2.99 cover price plus postage). Great collectible, but supplies are limited.
