My parents met at the U of A after WWII - dad was a veteran from Texas, Mom just out of HS (from Little Rock). Mom was friends with Leslie Hampton, who was Miss Arkansas and the reason that Scott transferred from Navy (where he played the first two years of his career). Clyde escorted her on campus when she came through on her way to the Miss America pageant, and when they married, he transferred to the U of A. There, Mom and Dad got to know them and sometimes double dated with them.

I got the Razorback "bug" from Dad, even though I grew up in Texas. He regaled me with stories of Clyde's exploits on the field. Told me he (Clyde) was the best football player he ever saw in person. Dad maintained that until Matt Jones came along. Both Dad and I had huge "man crushes" on Matt, as a football player. We loved watching every game he played in, because you never knew what play he might do something no one else could do. Same as Clyde, according to Dad.

Wish I had been able to see him play, back in the day.

RIP, "Smackover".

Very sad news. One of the best. I wonder if he wasn't the first Olympic medal winner from Arkansas?

Update. No it was James Rector in 1908.

Clyde Scott help put Arkansas on the map in football. 

Fix the spelling of his name OP, he was from Smackover not Edinburgh.

I have seen a rare color film of the 1946 Arkansas-Texas game featuring Smackover Scott. He was incredibly fast for his time and set a U of A record of 9.4 seconds in the 100 yard dash. The world record at that time was 9.3. The man could motor.

1 of the greatest to ever wear that Razorback uniform. May he rest in peace! He lived a very long life.

Interesting story that he gave up his #12 number so Steve Little could have it.
Kind of a lesser known story.

As GREAT an athlete and player as CS was, he was an even better person (if that's possible). I had the great privilege having worked with him professionally for several years "back in the day". He was as humble and kind as any one you'd ever want to meet. He was truly exceptional in every way imaginable. I mourn his passing.  :'(

Surely they'll do something—maybe including a video?—at one of the early home games this year.
