Soddy Daisy remembers Bryson Scott
SODDY DAISY, Tennessee (WDEF) – Bryson Scott was a bright spot in the Soddy Daisy community.
He passed away yesterday after he was injured in a serious ATV accident last weekend.
Bryson was someone Loftis Middle School baseball coach Woody Bolus couldn’t say enough about.
“He’s an incredible kid. I mean he really is just a genuine great kid and its just a freak accident,” said Bolus.
He got to help build the star baseball player for two years.
Bolus remembers Bryson for the positive impact on the field, saying “he was a great teammate, one you’ll talk about your whole life and say ‘you know I remember this young man, I played with him or got to coach him’.”
A friend of the family, Amanda Tate has helped organize a charity softball tournament in Brysons honor.
Coach Bolus says this kind of support is exactly what the Soddy Daisy community always delivers.
“This community is phenomenal. When something in need, a tragedy, or any needs, the community always comes together for whoever it is and they show incredible support,” he said. “Its a memory that will never fade, a light that will always be bright in all our hearts. Anybody that’s got to coach him or be around him will hold his name in conversations for many years to come.”
Scott would have attended Soddy Daisy High School this fall.
Students there wore orange today to show support; orange was his favorite color.
