To know “Myrick” was a gift that only some of us could have.  He joined APA in 1994.  He captained numerous teams in the 8-Ball and 9-Ball format.  The last few years he called his home bar Stick’s Place in Fairhope, Ala.  Scott excelled in his level of playing and was a skill level 7 and 9, although he would harass his League Operators, Dan and April Shepherd, about his 9-Ball handicap asking to be a 5 and on bad days, maybe a 3.  Scott was not a stranger to the Gulf Coast APA pool community.  His warm heart and genuine smile would light up any League match or tournament pressure situation.  He loved life, he loved the game and he loved his APA family.

On October 16, 2015, our pool family lost a great friend and mentor.  There are many stories and memories of Scott that will remain within the hearts of Gulf Coast APA players.  The Gulf Coast APA named the Masters Division after “Myrick,” as he could often be found shooting and talking “smack” to anyone who would listen.  His favorite statement was always, “I’m the best pool player here” and he’d give a chuckle just to see what his opponents would come back with.  “Myrick” earned many awards in the Gulf Coast APA such as MVP, Top Gun, 400 Matches Played and even a few trips to the Nationals in Las Vegas.  “Myrick” truly helped the Gulf Coast APA in Mobile, Ala., saturate the marketplace with the fun and excitement of APA pool.  Rest in peace our friend, until we meet again…
