Basketball player Jody Beerman Kelley is a legend at Central Michigan University and in the state of Indiana. She starred in the 1980s, winning a state title, then was honored with Miss Basketball, before moving on to Mount Pleasant.

She set several records, still standing at CMU, and has been inducted into the university's Athletic Hall of Fame and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.

Now, her son, Michigan State baseball player Bryce Kelley, looks to carry on his mom's athletic legacy by making his own mark. Kelley, a junior outfielder, is on pace to re-write the MSU record book in stolen bases.
