Who was the best basketball player to come out of Mayfield. I will go with Charles pinky Parrott. 1980 semi finals of state tournament was a great year for them.

You are crazy it was one of the Mills boys Wes Mills I think. Or the youngblood boy who was 6-7 and played football and basketball. There current principal at the high school was awesome at basketball Mr hubbard.

That is your problem, you should want to win at all sports not just football. A true powerhouse will win at all sports.

Take black players off MHS football team and u wouldn't have 800 wins. More like 80 wins. Frm 1978 to 2011 every black player that was part of those 800 wins have not been able to give back to the mayfield community because they are put back in drug community to fail. I have to say the best players come out of drug families. Can't blame all racism on drugs. Who benefits from all those wins. All u parents that have kids 4th grade and up, pls protect ur kids and believe that they are special and can make it to each level in life for the good of ur family so after football this town curse is broken. Start with letting these coaches knw u can't use my kids for ur benefit. Do ur research parents. A good coach will make sure ur kid succeed in life. No white quarterback in mayfield has ever been arrested for drugs..

Don't pull the race card on us on that. Mayfield has a good balance of white and black players, that's what makes mayfield football so good. Take off the white lineman and none of those backs are successful. I'm sorry that none of the white qbs chose 2 sell crack. I know a lot of white players that got a weed charge or a dui. Take responsibility 4 your own action and brake the mold and get out of the mayfield trap.

u must not have played any sports because u dnt have a clue white boy.. There has never been a all white line for mayfield that won a state title and never a white player on defense that made a dominate different to win titles.. What a white running back..

I'm like Sal, thinking this was about basketball. Mel, what about Joe Ford? Played basketball in the early 70s and then played for Vanderbilt. First game played at the "new" MHS was a Vanderbilt intra squad game.

I remember him he was tough. I was just a baby at the time. Probably one of there best players to come out of Mayfield. GRAVES does not have the lock on talented basketball players ther are plenty from both the county and the city. Did Ford Play pro ball in Europe?

I love the start of basketball because it tells me only 8 months until football practice begins.
