Deacon Scruggs was a very proud 1968 Central H.S. graduate, being a two sport letterman in both track and football. He was all about, "The Central Bears"! Married Sandra Pittman in 1974 Employed at The U.S. Post Office, The Y-Not Shack, Uniroyal, S.B. Community School Corp and University of Notre Dame. In 1992 he became a member of New Salem Missionary Baptist Church and later became chairman of the Deacon Board, Sunday School Superintendent/Teacher and the Nursing home Outreach Ministry. Playing ball with Doug, I knew from experience that he was a very good, very fast and very illusive running back. Deacon Scruggs was buried at Highland Cemetery.
