From Paul Childress – I had the privilege of being Scott’s teammate in high school.  We graduated together in 1988 and shared many wonderful moments on the hardwood.  Scott accumulated many individual awards during his career at LCHS.  He also led our basketball team to back to back 5th Region titles in ’87 & ’88.  Scott was also a great teammate and leader of our basketball team.  Today, Scott has a thriving dental business in LaRue Co. and is a valuable contributor to our community.  He has volunteered his time to LC Athletics over the years and remains as the one player people first talk about when discussing the alumni of LaRue Co. Basketball.

From Kelly Sandidge – As a former teammate of Scott’s, he was a tremendous player to play with.  He had a very high basketball IQ.  Even though Scott was 6’8” he was a pure shooter.  Each time he shot the ball you thought it was going in. Probably one of the best games Scott had while I played with him was at the Ashland Christmas Tournament his junior year against national powerhouse Oak Hill Academy.  Scott had 30 points, along with 10-11 from the field and 10-10 from the free throw line, as we nearly upset the nationally ranked team.

From Jason Reuter – I was very lucky to play high school basketball with Scott Boley. We were given the nickname “Twin Towers” and having two players our size come along in the same class was very rare. He played the game with a lot of passion and hated losing as much as anyone I’ve ever played with.  His jump shot from 15-18 feet was automatic which made the game much easier for me because the opposing team could not double team me in the post.  If you fouled Scott late in the game and put him on the foul line, the game was over, because he just did not miss! With the success we had, combined with his size and scoring ability, I’d say Scott Boley was the best player to have ever played boys basketball for LaRue County High School. More important than anything else, Scott was a better friend and teammate!

From Phil Eason – I was Scott’s high school principal and I am not certain anyone combined the athletic ability and academic acumen better than Scott. He is one of the best who ever played basketball at LCHS along with being an outstanding student.  He was the best student-athlete I was ever associated with. A great basketball player but even a better person.
