My heart goes out to Coach Bubba Scott's dear family in this great loss. He was a shining example of what a Christian man should be. He lived his faith. It has been such a blessing to me and my family to know and love Dot and Bubba Scott.
I believe that my deceased husband, Tim, was among the many who joyfully welcomed Bubba when he came home to heaven.

In sympathy and love,

I played HS sports in the 60's, everyone had great respect for Mr. Scott and the leadership he provided. I'm certain there was a standing ovation when he passed through the pearly gates. "Well done good and faithful servant."

I now recall the years , 1948-49 at Troy State Teachers College , as it was named then.....I think I recall "Snake Eyes" Hicks, if he was there during that time....Bubba Scott was a great Athlete and will be missed.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Coach Scott. He certainly crossed the paths of many people including mine as a great high school coach for Haleyville High School. Peace be with the family.
