Billy Reed, highly respected and award-winning Kentucky sportswriter, called the 1961 Ashland High School Tomcats basketball team the greatest Sweet Sixteen (Kentucky state tournament) champion of them all.

Individually they all had special things they did. Collectively they were the epitome of team .
