Bob Davis, Class of 1950, left his mark on Georgetown College as basketball, baseball and football coach and chair of the Physical Education Department. His 415 career basketball victories stood as a school record for 20 years and his 1961 team was runner-up in the NAIA National Tournament. During his outstanding career, he has been inducted in the NAIA Hall of Fame (one of five GC alumni so honored), been named NAIA Coach of the Year and vice chair of the U.S. Olympic Basketball Committee, and received a Georgetown College Alumni Achievement Award.
Kenny Davis, Class of 1971, still stands as perhaps the best basketball player to ever wear a Tiger uniform. A three-time NAIA All-American, his four-year total of 3,003 points set a career record for collegians in the state of Kentucky. He still stands as Georgetown's All-Time scoring leader, nearly 30 years after his Tiger career ended. His ability on the court gave him the opportunity to represent the College on five continents and to serve in a once-in-a-lifetime role as captain of the famed 1972 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team. His efforts have been rewarded with induction into the NAIA Hall of Fame and a Georgetown College Alumni Achievement Award.
Donna Hawkins, Class of 1965, was an exemplary student- athlete as an undergraduate student at GC. She began her teaching and coaching career at Georgetown in 1980 and has become the winningest coach in the history of the college. Her 73 percent overall winning percentage comes from 560 wins in volleyball through 1997 and 309 wins in women's softball through 1994. Her 1997 volleyball team brought home championships from the Mid-South Conference and Mid-South Region Tournaments. She stands as one of the top winningest volleyball coaches in the NAIA.
Brad Jones, Class of 1921, earned the nickname "The Legend" for his 44-year tenure with Georgetown College. He wore many hats in that time, including athletic director, physical education director, business manager and coach at various times for basketball, football, golf and track. While still coaching the golf team at age 94, he was thought to be the oldest collegiate coach in the country. It was said of Jones, "He was always busy." He received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the College in 1973.
Jim Reid, Class of 1970, exemplified integrity and dedication both on and off the basketball court. As a star undergraduate player, he helped lead the Tigers to 82 wins. He was named head coach for men's basketball in 1973, taking over for legendary Bob Davis, and proceeded to eclipse Davis' win total to become the all-time winningest coach in Georgetown basketball with 529 victories. His 1996 team was runner-up in the NAIA National Tournament. His stellar career led to an NAIA Hall of Fame indcution, being named NAIA Coach of the Year twice and being honored with a Georgetown College Alumni Achievement Award.
