For those of us lucky enough to have known Skeeter Lutz, his death from cancer in 2017 hit us hard. The man was a force, 200 per cent personality. Everything he did—whether playing softball, coaching girls basketball, rooting for the Virginia Cavaliers, umpiring, refereeing, or just holding court in the Porterfield Park end zone—he did with gusto. He made a mark on us all, and we all miss him.
Skeeter loved people, and so many people loved him back. He also loved Orange County High School. A few of his classmates from the Class of 1976 have decided to honor Skeeter’s memory by founding a scholarship in his name. OCHS seniors planning to further their education—whether in college, technical school, or the military—may apply for the Skeeter Lutz Scholarship Fund.
