Toledo’s City League of Hall of Fame is looking for the next hall of famer. Scott High School has many candidates, but we need the community’s help to reach out to them, promote them, and tell their stories.

Hall_of_Fame-stripScott has produced top athletes that should be recognized:

Willie Harper – He excelled in basketball, playing three varsity seasons in what he considered his favorite sport, but it was football that he excelled at. When he played his junior year he earned All-City Honors at middle guard. He also played for the University of Nebraska and the San Francisco 49ers for 10 years.

Lance Price – He dominated in track under the watchful eye of Coach Jim Billups. He received All-City Honors three years and was crowned the state champion in the 110-meter high hurdles. His records remain unbeaten. In addition, he was the co-captain of the football team for two years and was chosen all-city running back and defensive back.

Wes Jones – He played three sports while he attended Scott: basketball, baseball and football. He also received several letters in each sport. His fame came from his contribution to the 1958 Scott Bulldog team. They went 20-1 that season and were in fourth place in the national league. He did all this when he was a junior.

Ralph Lewis – He was partners with Wes Jones on the court and was a three-sport athlete: basketball, baseball, and football. He was with Wes when they won the championship with a 20-1 record. He also had the title of Scott’s Best Boy athlete.

We need to highlight these Scott athletes so we can give them the appreciation that they really deserve. If you know anybody that was an outstanding athlete that graduated from Scott, or other Toledo high schools, contact Jim Huss at jhuss@tps.org.

Of the 335 members of the City League Hall of Fame, 25 are Scott graduates.

Let’s make it 26. Once a bulldog, always a bulldog!
