LYNCHBURG, Va. – A community is mourning the loss of a beloved coach who helped kids for more than two decades in Lynchburg.

Coach Scott hunt passed away on Monday from what coaches say was COVID-19 and other underlying conditions.

He served as a football coach for various youth programs including Brookville’s “B” team, the middle school program.

Varsity coach Jon Meeks says Hunt’s dedication to youth was immeasurable.

“He might have topped 30 years in the little league ranks and we were lucky enough to get him helping us with B Team for about four years. And then he rejoined the little leagues, so he’s just been a guy that’s been a staple in the Brookville community and little league programs,” said Meeks.

Funeral services for Scott will be held on Sunday.
