Remembering Jake Scott

November 22, 2020

Another football great, Jake Scott an integral defensive, super clutch play standout on back to back Miami Dolphins’ title teams (the (17-0) ’72 team and the even more dominant ’73 team) died days back at age75.

“75” worn by Manny Fernandez (a viable Supe 7 MVP candidate, the award went to Scott, who had 2 interceptions), and in our games by Brad Weiner, evokes memories of the superb Miami defense, nicknamed the “No Name Defense.”

Jake also made big plays the following season, as Miami repeated as NFL champions in a Supe win, vs the Minnesota Vikings.

Below watch Dick Anderson’s interception return touchdown vs the Colts in the 1971 AFC Title Game. Jake Scott (#13) is the first to greet Anderson after the touchdown.
