Claude began his full-time UK broadcasting career in 1947 at WKLX. He covered some early UK football teams under coach Paul “Bear” Bryant and UK basketball coach Adolph Rupp’s first two NCAA Championship teams. Some of the players on Rupp’s famed “Fabulous Five” squad were older than Claude, but his career was taking off, and he enjoyed covering such memorable moments at such a young age.

Keywords:   Paul “Bear” Bryant, Adolph Rupp, University of Kentucky Wildcats, “Fabulous Five”, 1948 and 1949 NCAA Tournaments
