During this very unprecedented time please stay safe, healthy and informed.

Basketball Family/Friends,

We've lost yet another Chicago Public League basketball legend in Landon 'Sonny' Cox of King 'Jaguars' High School fame.  Sonny loved his players and loved winning basketball games.  And win he did, as he won three IHSA State Championships and six Chicago Public League City Championships.  His Jaguars playoff battles for city supremacy with also deceased Coach Bob Hambric's Simeon Wolverines were epic and legendary.

We offer our condolences and prayers to the Cox family as Sonny lost his health battle of many years on Tuesday, May 5, 2020.  And although physically no longer with us, Hall of Fame Coach Cox will live on through our conversations and memories for years and years and years. 

A public viewing will take place on Sunday, May 17, 2020 from 1pm to 5 pm at Leak and Sons Funeral Home, 18400 S. Pulaski,  Country Club Hills, 1-708-206-0860.

This year the CPLBCA had to cancel the annual Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon.  Inductees will be announced on this website at a later date.

To all, be blessed and stay safe.
