Fly will never forget Paulette Suggs, his faithful girlfriend at Austin Peay.
But Fly now has the love of his life, and he plans to be married in the next year or so.
Fly says he and Lezette Kelley, who works in Manhattan, N.Y., for the U.S. Postal Service, are the next-best-thing to being happily married. The two have been together for years.
"The love of my life," Fly says of Kelley. "Couldn't be any finer."
Nor could his memories of basketball and life at Austin Peay, where Fly met Suggs during his freshman year when he led the Govs into the NCAA Tournament.
"She was from Clarksville," Fly recalls. "I think she was homecoming queen my freshman year."
Suggs now lives near Atlanta and has been successful in the business world. Fly says he has talked to her in recent years, and he will never forget her good looks.
"She was kind of short, and her shape was outrageous," Fly says. "She was the prettiest girl on campus."
