In my opinion Roger Staton is the best that comes out and plays. James Kelly is really good top but I haven't seen him in awhile.
David Johnson and Danny Purdy are the probably the tow best around but that don't come out and play anymore.

James Kelly is good but his mouth gets him in trouble. He is a hustler and it sometimes haunts him.

I have heard many great things about David and Danny but I have not seen them play.

Of the people I have seen play on more than one occasion, I would think it would be Larry McClain, Tony McClain, or Chris Hampton.

Stephen Harris though in due time will be the one you will talk about when it comes to great pool players from this area.

Danny Purdy is the best in the county and probably in the state of kentucky, Ray Baldridge would be a close second.

Ever heard of Jackie Richmond, all the guys mentioned above aren't good enough to carry his cue into a pool hall. Its the truth ask around or bet a grand and you can see how good he is. He won't play for 5 or 10 a game like the ones mentioned above, you have to bet something to see what he's got. You guys got to get past mt. sterling to see any real pool players, around morehead there is a few guys that can run 2 or 3 balls in a row, I know, I have played everyone mentioned above. The closer you get to Lex. or Huntington the better the players you see, if someday morehead would get a real poolhall then the players would improve.

I have heard of Jackie Richmond but never seen him play in person. I know that he is Adrian Links mentor and he taught Adrian play. I have been told as good as Jackie was he couldn't hold a candle to Danny Purdy. Larry and Tonybill are very hard to beat when they are on. Chris Hampton has his moments but he gets in too big of a hurry. Stephen Harris plays good defense but he gets nervous easy and chokes a lot.

Danny Purdy is a local legend, He won a trip to vegas in college but never did any good. Trust me I know Jackie could have his way with Danny. The Mcclains are good guys, both friends of mine but two completely differnt leagues. Adrian done well in Louisville this year.

pretty sure Jackie is as great as everyone saids, i dont doubt that a bit...but the title was who was the best player around the morehead area...

but i agree with you 100% there some great great players in lex...i have only been to WV a few times to TJ's...been to pikeville once...good players there also...morehead will never have a "decent" pool room,and it sucks

larry price is the best around hes playing on the circut this winter in florida.

Larry Price is probably the best that has ever been around here, he used to be a low level pro, and will give unreal weight to make a game, but the truth is if you take it you CAN'T win! He is not a good guy by any means, last I heard he was running with Matt from West liberty and was arrested for drugs. Imagine what he could have been if he was not mixed up in this crap!! UNREAL

Cleveland, GA

#15 Mar 4, 2009
but there is some players Larry wouldnt even TAKE weight from...cause he knows he couldnt win...yeah "fatmatt" Matt Pack...staked him for well over a yer maybey longer..but he used to live like 3 places down here in morehead

I think Tracy Smith and Larry McClain are the best around here and could probably hold their own in other towns and actually these two boys I know have played other places and done well, but they haven’t had the opportunity to play in big tournaments like others.

Kevin Smith is the best pool player by far. I wouldn't want to play against him.

Hillsboro, KY

#19 Mar 17, 2009
Your crazy you must not be a pool player or ever watched any of them play. Tracy is a lot better then Kevin. Kevin is a slop player I like him and all but he’s a slop player.

That's a matter of opinion. Kevin could run circles around Tracy.
