Fred Scott, who coached Abilene High School tennis team to 247 wins and the 1999 state team championship, will be inducted to the Texas Tennis Coaches Association Hall of Fame during ceremonies Dec. 6 in New Braunfels.

As a player, Scott won a state championship in doubles for Sweetwater and played collegiately at Eastern Kentucky University and Amarillo College before finishing his career at Hardin-Simmons University. His first coaching job was at Mason High School before moving to coach at his alma mater at Sweetwater High. During his early coaching years at the two programs, Scott qualified 18 players to the state tournament and had three state champions.

Scott then moved to head the men’s and women’s tennis teams at the University of North Texas, where his teams won both the men’s and women’s Southland Conference titles. He was named the SLC Coach of the Year. He returned to the high school coaching ranks in 1993 at Plainview and led his team to its first tennis district championship in the school’s history before accepting the AHS job in 1997.

He and his wife of 37 years, Judy Rene’, have three children and four grandchildren.
