Scott Phillips, 2005 Inductee, has led a life pursuing all of his dreams. He is the only Hall of Honor member who has served in the military as a Navy SEAL and is a minister of the Gospel.
Scott played football, basketball and track while at Wylie High School. Lettering in football three years, he racked up a few honors. As a junior and senior, he was team captain and 1st team All-District middle linebacker. Both years, he was named Defensive player of the year. His senior year, Scott was awarded 1st team All-State honors. One of his most memorable games was his senior year as he and his teammates battled together against Southlake Carroll in the 3A Area Finals Play-off game. The Pirates were Bi-District champs beating Mabank 24-0. Southlake Carroll became the Area champs with their 27-12 win against Wylie.
After graduating in 1988, Scott walked on and was given a scholarship to attend Southern Methodist University. He then attended a couple of other colleges, before enlisting in the U.S. Navy to become a Navy SEAL. He served in the military a total of nine years and traveled to California, Georgia, Hawaii and was deployed to Korea. After his tour of duty, he became a Naval Reserve and served from 2004-2007.
In 2007, Phillips felt called to full-time ministry and applied for the Children’s Pastor position that was open at First Baptist Wylie. He has served in that capacity the last six years. This month, he transitioned into a new position as Connections Pastor.
Remaining an ardent sportsman, Scott is an avid biker, firearms instructor, sports fan and martial artist.
Scott married his high school sweetheart, Lori Caskey(WHS ’89), They have four sons - Gus, Barrett, Grayson and Gage.
His words of wisdom to Pirate athletes, “Keep playing your chosen sport for as long as you can, at whatever level you can…..regardless if you are a starter or not, keep at it…don’t quit…play until you can’t play anymore.” To all Pirates, “Pray like everything depends on God and work like everything depends on you and no matter what never, ever quit!

NORTHBROOK, Ill. (Sept. 15) – Central Oklahoma's Seth Hiddink was one of just 22 players from around the country named to the 2015 AllState American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team® that was announced Tuesday.
In its 24th year, the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® is the most esteemed off-the-field honor in college football and is comprised of student-athletes who have made a positive impact on others and their communities with their acts of service while maintaining a strong academic standing.
Hiddink is a junior pre-vet major from Wylie, Texas in his third year as UCO's top place-kicker and has been an active volunteer with both the Reason to Believe Therapeutic Riding Center and Oakridge Equine Hospital in Guthrie. He's made 75 extra points and 28 field goals, owns the school career record for consecutive PATs (50) and is nearing UCO's top-10 list in all-time scoring with 159 points.
The Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® program received a record 197 nominations this summer and 22 make up the final team, with 11 of those coming from NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision and 11 from NCAA Football Championship Subdivision, Divisions II, III and NAIA.
"The members of the 2015 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® are an excellent example of hard work and dedication, both on the field and off," AFCA executive director Grant Teaff said. "These 22 student-athletes have shown, through countless hours of community service and work on the football field, that you can give more of yourself to help those around you. It's a privilege to team up with Allstate to honor these students."
College football fans can vote for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® captain at ESPN.com/Allstate through Nov. 25, 20015. The team captain and his fellow award recipients will be invited to New Orleans to participate in a community project before the 2016 Allstate® Sugar Bowl.
