Gary Elliott

Category:  Player
Year Inducted:  2018

Elliott averaged 29 points and 17 rebounds a game his senior season at Winslow at Winslow High School (70-73). He was the school’s all-time leading scorer and rebounder. He received dozens of D1 offers and chose Western Kentucky. Gary played 1 season at Western Kentucky, where he averaged 22 ppg and 8 rpg as a freshman. Elliott was an incredible talent who put up great numbers in high school and college. Unfortunately, Elliott developed Melanoma and passed away at the age of 21 before he could continue his college career.

Besides entertaining the community with his basketball talent, Gary also left a hole in the community with his tragic passing at a young age from cancer.
