Coalition Bowl To Honor DeAntre Turman

Star Creekside Player Died In August From Injury

Friday, December 20, 2013

Creekside High School football player DeAntre Turman, who died from injuries suffered making a tackle during a preseason scrimmage game in August, will be honored at the D.L. Scott Coalition Bowl Saturday at the Georgia Dome.

Turman will be remembered at the halftime of the 4 p.m. Junior All-star game featuring middle school all-stars from the Atlanta area against stars from the Augusta area.

The 5-11, 165-pound cornerback was one of the top prospects in the Class of 2015 and had made a verbal commitment to Kentucky according to his family.

"Tre Tre" as Turman was called, was an extremely talented player who made a tackle during the scrimmage against Banneker High and never got back up.

Dr. David L. Scott, a veteran youth coach who originated and sponsors the all-day Coalition Bowl, wanted to make sure that Turman was honored at the event.

"He was a great kid that excelled despite adversity in his life," Scott said. "He was a competitor and he always gave my teams fits ... and I had some very good teams."

According to news reports, Turman's mother died when he was four years old and he was raised by Tarsha Keller.

Scott said that the Coalition Bowl Senior and Junior All-Star Games and the youth games are, "To reward participants for their outstanding effort, commitment, and dedication to Georgia high school football."

Scott has had his former players participate in his All-star games and go on to play in college. He provides this event to give the student athletes in Georgia a showcase for their talents in an effort to increase scholarship opportunities.

In addition to its High School and Junior All-star games, the David L Scott Coalition Bowl is host to one of the country’s premier post season Youth Football Tournaments. The top youth football teams in Georgia (ages 6u, 8u, 10u, 12u) kick off at 8:00 AM with championship games in the Dome.

"To me, none of it matters, What does it matter?” he laughed at the Tide’s No. 6 ranking. “I mean, it only matters where you end up at the end. So what matters to us is how ... (click for more)
