UA’s Greatest All-Around Athlete Crosses the Final Goal Line
« on: February 08, 2018, 11:21:52 pm »

Pine Bluff’s Basil Shabazz, El Dorado’s “Goose” Tatum, Forrest City’s Don Kissinger and LR's Brooks Robinson are among the greatest all-around athletes the state of Arkansas has ever produced. They played at high levels in multiple sports. None, though, surpass the greatest multi-sport Razorback: Clyde “Smackover” Scott.

My deep dive tribute to the legend:

Great Article And My Grandpa said he only Believed that Basil Shabazz was more dangerous on the Gridiron.

What we got to see in the State Track Meet of Champions we will never forget cause BS put on a show for the ages.

Tying Jesse Owens record was impressive. I did not realize he was that fast.

I unfortunately never saw Shabazz in person (too young) but these are the kinds of stories I keep hearing. Either a documentary about him (or him and Torii Hunter) is probably the No. 1 "30 for 30" style Arkansas-style documentary which needs to be made.

I deep dove into that a few years ago...

[Confession: At the time, I wasn't aware of exactly how great of an athlete Clyde Scott had been in his own right]
