Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

Penny Hardaway has now added the former AAC Coach of the Year along with Kendric Davis (former AAC Player of the Year). That’s impressive work for the coach of a program facing possible NCAA sanctions. It speaks to Hardaway’s resilience, above all.
