Earl Cox is the most honored sportswriter in Kentucky. A former columnist and sports editor for the Louisville Courier-Journal, and now the weekly sports editor and columnist for Louisville's Voice-Tribune, Cox is the only member of all three of these organizations:

Hall, Pete Rose, Bobby Knight, Ed Diddle, Blanton Collier, Ralph Beard, Wes Unseld and much more.
