Thirty-two years ago, Georgia wide receiver Lindsay Scott was involved in arguably the most famous play in Bulldogs history. Trailing archrival Florida 21–19 late in the fourth quarter, Scott raced for a 93-yard, catch-and-run touchdown — the Larry Munson radio call for which (“Run, Lindsay run!”) many Dawgs fans can recite.
In May, Scott was back in the football headlines again. A four-year player (1982–1985) with the New Orleans Saints, Scott was one of 100 former NFL players to file a lawsuit against the league, claiming they weren’t properly protected from concussions.
Scott, who is married with three children, also runs a Merry Maids house cleaning franchise in Valdosta, GA.
In Athens, Scott was more than just a one-hit wonder. In addition to being a key contributor to the Bulldogs’ 1980 national title-winning team, Scott was a first team All-SEC performer in 1981. He was inducted into the Florida-Georgia Hall of Fame in 1997.
