In Focus: Sports Photography by Keith Cephus
On display in the Riddle Sports Gallery until June 30

“Regardless of the sport, everyone on the sidelines, under the basket, or in the well shooting baseball, wants that “epic” shot. Sometime it comes, but more often than not, it doesn’t. That’s why we as photographers have to create those epic shots that others may not think about such as the crowds, the coaches, and the referees.”                  Keith Cephus

An international wedding and celebrity photographer, Keith Cephus is based in the Virginia Beach area. He has been shooting professionally for more than seventeen years and has traveled the world photographing exotic weddings. Cephus' work has been recognized by numerous publications worldwide including American Bride, Destination Weddings, Modern Bride, Destination IDO, The Knot, Vow, Essence and Hampton Roads Bride.

Back in 1990, Keith started his sports photography career during the World Welterweight title fight between Pernell “Sweetpea” Whitaker (VSHF 2012) and Buddy McGirt at the Norfolk Scope. In order to be there, he had obtained his credentials through the International Freelance Photographers Organization (IFPO). Fortunately, he didn’t contain himself to boxing coverage, and nowadays, he covers most sports such as the MLB, NFL, and NBA as the Sports Editor for Coastal Virginia Magazine. In Focus: Sports Photography by Keith Cephus is his first solo exhibition concentrating on his sports photographs.

Inductee News: In Memory of Betty Jaynes

Betty Jaynes, Class of 2008 Inductee, died on Monday, February 10, 2014 at the age of 68. Jaynes joined the staff of Madison College (now James Madison University) in 1968 as an assistant professor of physical education, teaching gymnastics, swimming and tennis.  In 1970, she became the women’s basketball head coach, a post she held until 1982.  During her 12-year tenure, the Lady Dukes amassed a notable 142-114 record and won the Virginia AIAW state championship (1975), as well as three runner-up finishes (1973-77-79).  Her 1978-79 squad was the first ever at Madison to finish with a 20-win season.

Beyond her accomplishments on the court, Jaynes is best known for her administrative accomplishments at the national level.  She helped to develop the Kodak All-America program by serving as its committee chair (1976-82), and chaired the US Girls’ and Women’s Basketball Rules Committee (1979-81).  In 1981, Jaynes co-founded the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, and has given over 25 years of service to the organization in the roles of executive director (1981-96), CEO (1996-2000), and consultant (2000-present).  Under her direction, the WBCA grew from its 212-member infancy to a 5,000-plus member resource and advocate for women’s and girls’ basketball at every level.

For her contributions to the sport, Jaynes is an inductee of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Hall of Fame (2006); Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame (2000); and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame (2007).  In 2006, Jaynes was presented with the prestigious Bunn Lifetime Achievement Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. She will be known for one of the greatest pioneers for women's sports.

More on the Class of 2014:

Rondé Barber, a native of Roanoke, VA, graduated from Cave Spring High School in 1993 before heading to the University of Virginia where he was a three-time All-ACC selection for the Cavaliers. After the 1994 season, Barber was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman of the Year. Barber made 15 career interceptions at the University of Virginia and following the 1996 season, he declared for the NFL Draft. Rondé Barber was taken in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Barber spent his entire 16-year career with the Buccaneers and accumulated five Pro Bowl selections, three first-team All-Pro selections, and helped capture the team’s first Super Bowl in franchise history in Super Bowl XXXVII against the Oakland Raiders. On January 31, 2010, Barber was named to the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team. At the time of his retirement in 2012, Barber was the Buccaneers all-time interceptions leader, had recorded the most quarterback sacks by an NFL cornerback and was the only member of the 40/20 club (over 40 interceptions and over 20 sacks). Career totals include 1,025 tackles, 28 quarterback sacks, 47 interceptions and 12 touchdowns.

Sean Casey is a graduate of the University of Richmond, where he was a three-time All-CAA selection and captured the NCAA batting title during the 1995 season with a .461 batting average.

Returning to Norfolk State as an assistant baseball coach in 1972, Miller took over the team full-time the following season as head coach where he stayed until 2005 before being named the University’s Director of Athletics. In his 32 years as head baseball coach, he went 718-543-3, including 17 conference championships. Miller was named the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association’s (CIAA) Coach of the Year 15 times, and is the winningest baseball coach in CIAA history. Miller is a member of the John B.

After her prestigious college career, Penicheiro was the number two overall pick by the Sacramento Monarchs in the 1998 WNBA draft. In her 15-year career in the WNBA, Penicheiro was a four time WNBA All-Star, captured the WNBA championship in 2005, and is the all-time record holder in assists. Penicheiro was an honoree of the WNBA’s All-Decade Team in 2006.
