Passing the test; Scott Otis defied the odds to make the NFL

“When I look at some of the names that have already been inducted, they all had great high school careers that stand out on their own,” he said. “I realize that my body of work came a little later, and it’s nice to see that they look at the whole picture. I’m truly honored and thankful to the committee and the community.”

On Thursday, Nov. 14, Otis will be honored in an induction ceremony at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville. To reserve tickets, contact Jim Verderame at (860) 628-7335.
