Agriculture, family and sports are infused into every corner of this remote farm town in western Kansas. Scott City has two traffic lights, eight churches, 3,890 residents and about 150,000 beef cattle. The tallest structure in town is the grain elevator and the most important is the football stadium, which looks like something straight out of Friday Night Lights. “Every small-town cliché you hear, it’s legit for me,” said Baker, who was a three-sport star — quarterback, basketball forward and baseball pitcher — at Scott Community High School.
“We were both guys who weren’t supposed to play and had goofy haircuts,” Hornacek said. “There are some parallels. When I came into the league, I didn’t think I’d play at all when I made the team. John MacLeod was my coach in Phoenix and he saw I played the smart way. I may not have been the fastest guy or the strongest guy or the highest jumper, but I did things that the coach wanted to see. I got the ball to the star guys. Ron came in doing the same thing, and that’s what made him earn minutes with us.”
