Brack Family Donates To Scott Center For Autism Treatment

Alex passed away in early November
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Greg and Janet Brack, the parents of former Florida Tech football player Alex Brack, have donated $1,000 to FIT’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.
“Janet and I have been overwhelmed with the way the scholarship fund has taken off and the outpouring of love from FIT and the Melbourne community as well as our local community,” Greg Brack said.
“It is with gratitude that we make the first donation from the Alex Brack Scholarship Foundation to The Scott Center for Autism Treatment.”
Greg recalls offensive coordinator Jayson Martin taking Alex on a visit to The Scott Center during a recruiting trip to campus.
He says Alex quickly developed an appreciation for The Scott Center children that stemmed from his big brother relationship with an eight-year-old autistic boy from his hometown of DeFuniak Springs, Florida.
He went on to volunteer with The Scott Center’s social skills program throughout his three years as a Panther.
Alex majored in civil engineering and loved FIT.
He was named to the Gulf South Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll following the Panthers’ inaugural 2013 season for posting a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher through the fall 2013 semester.
A redshirt sophomore kicker, he led the Panthers to a four-point win in his final game on Nov. 1 at Shorter by converting all four of his extra point attempts.
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.
Those wishing to donate can mail their gift payable to the Alex Brack Scholarship Foundation at Walton County Teachers Federal Credit Union, PO Box 634, DeFuniak Springs, FL 32435.
