I'm returning to Hurst over Thanksgiving after more than 50 years. I called Bell High today to learn if any of my old teachers and coaches might still be with us. They told me Coach had died in September. I had hoped to visit him if he still lived in the area, as he was truly an inspiration to me. Thank you, Coach. You taught me well!

I remember being in the Pennington Field House in 1968, my coach, Hoot and me were talking football. Hoot pointed out the importance of the position I held with one statement and my game was elevated forever. Many other times I saw him around the schools. The world is a lesser place with his passing.

Our son, Elliot Souter, has been awarded the "Hoot Smith Fighting Heart" Award for two years running as linebacker at LD Bell High School and we are overwhelmed with what this award truly means. We consider it such an honor and privilege at Elliot having been identified as exemplifying qualities and characteristics of such a respected leader and educator. Thank you, Mr. Smith for leaving such a legacy. We pray for comfort and strength for your family and that God will rest your soul.
~~Levale and Cathy McNair and family
