There were no coaches in the press box, with headsets on, sending down information from above -- where the view was supposed to be advanta- geous. Legend has it that Baze eould see all 22 players on each play. It was funny to see the opposing coaches up in the press box, alone.., and the scoreboard reading, 62-13 Valdosta. Wright Bazemore was spe- cial. There will never be anoth- er like him. Knowing he's gone now, hurts.., but his legend will live on. I will always feel priv- ileged to have known him, and what he was all about. I'm a much better person because of it, and I have no doubt every- one else who got to know him, feels the same way. too. Youngsters growing up in Vaidosta were in awe of him. Teenagers at Valdosta High School-idolized him. Adults, metkJaII] WOmel,in the com- munity regarded him as a hero. Why? ...Let me count the ways. Winners in life, especially in athletics, are respected, but not always loved. The men I've mentioned above, were all adored. Coach Bazemore fol- lowers respected his won-loss record, but they loved the man. He was tough on everyone. Star players got no special treatment. A team needs that atmosphere to flourish, and his Wildcat teams always had it. There were no long speeches; just brief huddles, right to the Point. His players never once doubted his ability to lead, and Win. Motivation was never a Problem, but the determining factor in truly believing in the cause was this: Wright tazemore was never, ever out- Coached. He was an innovator offen- Sively... light years ahead of his Competition. The spread Offense started in Valdosta, not at Stanford, under Bill Walsh. !t just seemed so easy, watch- mg from the stands. His quarterbacks felt the same way. Defenses were sim- Ply at his mercy, and Baze did- n't believe in taking it easy on an opponent.
