re: Jake Scott Has Died
I don't buy the "fell and hit his head" story. I think he was probably in a bar fight.

Jake Scott was my all time favorite Dawg. My first UGA year was 1967. I was lucky enough to see all of Scott's games in Athens. Scott was a great safety and a great return man. R.I.P.

That guy lived life to the very edge. It was a full life. Farewell to a DGD... We could all be so lucky.

Jake and Dooley butted heads many times. I remember him well from my time at Georgia.

re: Jake Scott Has Died
When I was at Georgia and living at Callaway Garden apartments, I would stop by the Fifth Quarter, which was owned by Wayne Swinford (who played for Dooley), on the way home from class and have a long neck Bud or two. In the Spring of either 75 or 76, I was leaning on the bar having my afternoon beer and I heard Swinford say "Damn Jake, what are you doing in Athens". I turned to look and coming in the bar was Jake Scott himself, sleeveless t-shirt, cut off shorts and sneakers. Seems like just yesterday and now he's gone. Damn, just damn.

As a Dawg and Dolphin fan, Jake was my first favorite football player. I was 7 years old when he and the Dolphins went undefeated in 72 and he won SB VII MVP. RIP Jake.

re: Jake Scott Has Died
Jake had a record 16 INTs at UGA...in only 22 games...10 alone in 1968. His record has since been tied by Bacarri Rambo and Dom Sanders..in 55 games. Good Lord, what a player! 49 INTs in a 9 year pro career..thats at least 5 a year.

Jake was an uncanny ball hawk. It seemed as if Jake knew where the ball was going before the QB did. He still holds the Dolphins interception record also.
