Keith “Mister” Jennings will officially become a Hall of Famer at East Tennessee State this weekend, but he’s been a legendary figure in these parts for as long as many can remember.

The little point guard from Culpeper, Va., was certainly one of the most popular athletes in ETSU history when he walked off the basketball court here for the last time in 1991. His stature has only grown in the two decades since.

Now 44, Jennings will be inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame with five others in ceremonies Sunday night at the Millennium Center.

“It really means a lot to me,” he said earlier this week from Bluefield, Va., where he’s been an assistant coach at Bluefield College for the last four years. “Those were some great times, and I really appreciate all the people who still remember me.”

Who could forget?
