Remembering Jake Scott, the original ‘Wild Dawg’

I was greatly saddened Thursday by news of the death of UGA great Jake Scott, an All-American for the Dawgs, an All-Pro defensive back and Super Bowl MVP for the Miami Dolphins — and one of my heroes growing up in Athens.

I have vivid memories of his days playing for Georgia, and also of him running the film projector during a summer driver’s ed class I took!

Here’s a tribute to Scott that I wrote back in 2011, when Scott was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
