  1. I would like to express my condolences to the family of Scott Stocke. I have many good memories of our days of playing basketball together at Enfield High School. I remember Scott as our smart, confident, tenacious point guard who kept Trojan basketball team moving at a high speed in the right direction while delivering the basketball to the right player at the right time. Thanks to his aggressive nature, Trojans had some very good teams during Scott’s era (1965-1969). We were also on the track team together. Scott was one of the fastest men on the team at short distances. He was usually one of the top finishers in the 50 yard dash, 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash. After high school we went our separate ways with our careers and lost touch over the years. But I will always have fond memories of those days in high school together and some of those trips to Carbondale to watch basketball games riding in his GTO.

    Rest in peace Scott Stocke. I pray for peace and comfort for your family as they mourn your passing.
