Perry Ellis stood on the stage at the KSHSAA state track and field championships to loud cheers at Cessna Stadium.
Ellis was inducted into the KSHSAA Hall of Fame as a part of the 2019 class this afternoon.
Ellis starred on the hardwood for the Wichita Heights Falcons, winning four state titles.
“It feels great, I love this city, I’m born and raised like I said, a smaller city like compared to the bigger cities I played in overseas, like Istanbul, I just love it and you know everybody and just a great feeling,” said Ellis.
After a successful high school career, Ellis would go on to play his college ball for the Kansas Jayhawks.
