Scott Surratt is ‘The Man.’ His arrival into Carthage seven years ago was the best thing that could have happened to a lackluster football program, and what he’s managed to accomplish has been phenomenal to say the least. With four state championships under his belt, he’s brought a sense of pride and excitement not only to the school, but to the community as well.
Growing up in the small community of Linden, Texas, Scott graduated from Linden-Kildaire High School in 1986. He loved sports and was good at them. Up until his junior year in high school, baseball was his favorite sport, but when he began playing football on Friday nights as the quarterback and also linebacker, it surpassed baseball for the number one spot. He also played basketball, pole vaulted, won district in tennis three years and played golf his senior year. He went to East Texas Baptist University on a baseball scholarship and graduated in four years.
