Greg and Janet Brack, parents of former Florida Tech football player Alex Brack, donated $1,000 to Florida Tech’s Scott Center for Autism Treatment. The contribution was made from the Alex Brack Scholarship Foundation, which was created following Alex’s passing in early November.
Greg Brack remembered offensive coordinator Jayson Martin taking Alex to visit The Scott Center during a recruiting trip to campus. Alex quickly developed an appreciation for the center’s young clients that stemmed from his Big Brother relationship with an 8-year-old autistic boy from his hometown of DeFuniak Springs, Florida. Alex later volunteered with The Scott Center’s social skills program throughout his three years as a Panther.
The Brack family’s donation will help Scott Center children from less fortunate families receive the treatment they need. With continued financial support in the foundation, the family would like to make an annual gift to the center in Alex’s name.
