Thirty-five years after helping the Shelby County boys’ basketball team to the state championship and 15 years after his former teammates got theirs, Charles Hurt finally got his title ring.

Hurt, who currently is an assistant coach at Shelby County, was surprised with a state championship ring Friday night before the Rockets’ regular-season finale against Gallatin County.

“It was a surprise to say the least,” said Hurt, a 1979 Kentucky All-Star and a former standout at the University of Kentucky. “It was great.”
