Early this afternoon, Scott Davis, one of the world's top track and field authorities, passed away following a long illness.
A 1965 graduate of UCLA (he earned his Master's in 1975), he was the longtime PA announcer for UCLA track & field meets. In addition, he was also a member of the stat crew at Bruin football games.
In the world of track & field, he was recognized as one of the best, if not the best, public address announcers. If a big event was happening, Scott Davis was at the mike.
He is survived by his wife Cheryl and his son Scott Jr., a 1995 UCLA graduate. Our condolences to the Davis Family.
