    Scott, proud to see you walk up the hill at the State game, and was glad you got to take the field with the Dawgs one more time. Prayers for you and your family. Clyde and Juke are headed to Columbia to help secure your wish.

    Re: One last win

    Wow, reading this really got me. We don't know each other, Scott, but you were instrumental in making me a lifelong fan of the Dawgs. I'll never forget the feeling of elation of being in the stands that day when you and the Dawgs beat Colorado State. That feeling continued every time we beat the Baylors, Cals, Oklahoma State, Alabama's, Michigan States, etc all the way to today. I don't know what it will be like when we get to heaven, but I have to assume that the joy and elation that I felt after all of those wins will not come close to comparing.

    Thank you for the joy that you brought to all of us in the Joe on those days so long ago. I pray for peace for you and your family in the coming days and envy you seeing Christ soon. That truly is winning. God bless you sir.

    Re: One last win

    Scott, we have never met, but I cheered for you as a player and I'm praying for you now. Goodbyes are never fun, and I appreciate your dignity.

    In that 1990 game, CSU was beating us with just a few minutes to go until we pulled off the upset. The clock isn't on your side today, but I'm still rooting for you to pull off another upset.

    All the best to you and your family. I hope our Bulldogs can deliver your wish.

    Re: One last win

    Scott, I want to thank you for sharing just a little of what you and your family have been through. I know it's been difficult, and I'm so sorry that it's ending this way. But please remember GOD HAS A PLAN for you and your family. You will be missed, and many of us will be praying for you and your family. I know this.....watching #57 for LA Tech will never be the same again for me.

    Andy, thank you for sharing your remarkable story too. What an amazing testimony.

    This is what "family" is all about. This is Louisiana Tech.

    Re: One last win

    Wow, this thread has been truly moving. I often reflect on my love for Tech and am not sure exactly why it thrives, this thread and these stories remind me of why. I met most of my best friends at that university, it is truly home for me.

    God bless you Scott.

    Re: One last win

    Several times I have started to reply to this thread but could not bring myself to type. I have met only a few of the members on this board but over time you do get to know them. So it really saddens me when anyone is going thru difficulties. This one is different.

    when I was 18 one of my best friends was killed in a car accident. I remembered something his mother asked me. "Please don't forget about him"

    Scott, you gave us so many wonderful memories. You were one of JRP's boys. You were everything a Dawg should be.

    You will be remembered!!

    I love you my friend!

    Re: One last win

    I didn't see this thread until last night, and something occurred to me after I responded to Scott's post...

    Too often, we wait until people are gone to say nice things about them and honor them appropriately. Let's not wait that long this time.

    My first thought was that we should rename the "Rockett Board" the "Scott Collis Board." Scott was on the Spirit of '88 team, played on the '90 bowl team, and has been an active alumnus and BBB member. Renaming that board might sound a little controversial to some, but it feels like we should do something since he has been not only one of our posters, but also one of our student athletes during some of our most difficult years.

    It's crazy to me that we have no one, but two sections of the board named after faithful board members who've lost a battle with cancer...Galen Rockett and Lee Fletcher. And we're looking at the possibility of another dawg brother making that journey. Heavy stuff.
