The day after his 90th birthday, the Rev. Jimmie Rose delivered the sermon at the First United Methodist Church in Cynthiana.
One might say that is great news and all but why is this on the sports page?
The answer to that question is Jimmie Rose is an icon of basketball in Kentucky high school laurels as well as a minister/evangelist of renown.
At the age of 20, Jimmie Rose led the Olive Hill High School Comets basketball team to the state tournament semi finals where they lost to Wallace “Wah Wah” Jones and Harlan 29-26.
