Big Ralph Richardson was the Kentucky Mr. Basketball co-winner in 1958 after leading the '57 Laker (boys) team to the Sweet 16; was selected as the MVP of the '57 state tourney; played two years of varsity baketball at Eastern (this was before freshman were allowed to play on the varsity team); and was drafted after his junior year at Eastern by the New York Knicks.(He suffered a career-ending injury in a preseason game of what would have been his rookie season.)

In his playing days at Russell County High, Big Ralph scored over 2,000 points. He's in the 12th Region Hall of Fame, the KHSAA Hall of Fame, the Kentucky All-Star Hall of Fame, and the Eastern Kentucky University Athletic Hall of Fame.

that's great that they were the best athletes...but have they done anyhting with their lives after High
school?
too many times a school coach will push a youngster to be the best athlete but neglect their education.
I hope they were just as successful after high school..and I mean no disrespect.

Your frikkin idiots the best two athletes ever to attend RCHS are still in school, Tyler Robertson and Nick Britt. If my ESPN Radio station was ever on the air for more that 4 hours a day you'll would know that because I would report it like I report everything which is to say not very well. This is the old bucket head signing off now and heading to see what my mentor David Williams has for me to do next.

Bryan Milburn first (even though he only played one year) - but still he went to Vandy. After that Ralth Richardson's records speaks for itself. Tommy Canada was the best natural scorer in the 90's and Brently Taylor was 2nd. Nick Woolridge best athlete in football
