George Scott Award

This fund was established to honor former Fort Collins High School coach George Scott. Each year the scholarship award goes to an outstanding student at Fort Collins High School.

George Scott left a rich legacy of athletic achievement and a dedicated regard for human values through a coaching career spanning many decades. He touched the lives of so many youngsters in their formative years, he became known as the “father of high school athletics.”

In 1956, he was designated the year’s “Community Builder” in Fort Collins and he was inducted posthumously into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame in 1975.
