LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Student-athletes at Jefferson High School in Lafayette listened to a local legend Tuesday.
Gene Keady spoke to student-athletes and parents from around the community. The former Purdue basketball coach highlighted what he learned throughout his athletic and coaching career.
The athletes asked questions about what it takes to be successful in sports and in life.
Others who attended enjoyed his stories from his time here.
Coach Keady said the Lafayette area has been a special place for him.
"Well, it's everything because it's where I had pretty good success. I had a lot of help. I didn't do it by myself. I had a lot of great weight coaches, secretaries, trainers, a lot of great assistant coaches who now are head coaches and a lot of great athletes," said Keady.
Keady will be in town for the rest of the week and will attend this weekend's Purdue football game.
