Sports Overtime tribute to Scott Michael Trager - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Sports Overtime tribute to Scott Michael Trager

Posted: Updated:

On Wednesday, our dear friend Scott Michael Trager passed away unexpectedly.

It's been a very emotional past few days for everyone.  And while we all grieve together, this is also a time to celebrate Scott's life.

Scott had many passions - including sports.  In fact, it was Scott's love for high school sports that led to the creation of Sports Overtime.

Scott dubbed it "The Big Show".  And alongside his partner in crime, John McGowan, the two set the gold standard for shows of its kind with great highlights, smart writing, and a whole lot of fun.

A true original himself, "The Original Big Show" will never be the same without Scott.
