Noted Beltway Trainer Al Scott Passes!
Scott was best known for Beltway moments like the one pictured above. Scott is on the left of the above picture with co-trainer Leonard Langley celebrating with NABF Junior Welterweight champ Reggie 'Showtime" Green. Scott, Langley and Vardell McCann helped guide a group of boxers known as the "Hard Corps" (Green, Derrell Coley, Gerry Payne and Reuben Bell) to a number of regional titles in the early to mid-90's. Scott was a fixture in the Beltway Boxing scene until about four years ago when his health started to take a turn for the worse.
I was doing the TV show Boxing Spotlight during those days when the "Hard Corps" was riding high and you could not find a nicer, more humble man than Al Scott. He was just a joy to be around and he will be truly missed by the Beltway Boxing Community.
We will pass along arrangements when we receive them. My deepest condolences to the family.
