(Lafayette High School, 1956-1960)
In the legendary history of Lafayette High School basketball, Jeff Mullins is recognized as one of its greatest players. He was an All-State performer in 1959 and 1960 and is considered one of the “purest” shooters in Kentucky basketball history. He was named Mr. Kentucky Basketball in 1960. His success at Lafayette propelled him into becoming an All-American guard at Duke University where his jersey was later retired. He had a thirteen year All-Star NBA career and later coached at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
