Eagle Staff Report

A memorial service for a former Eagle sportswriter is scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at Crosspoint Community Church in Katy.

Scott Kaiser, who was also a former sportswriter for Houston-area community papers and was working as the Katy High School tennis coach and teaching history, was found dead in his car late Monday.

Kaiser was found in his vehicle in the parking lot of Ikon Bank near South Barker Cypress Road and Interstate 10 East. It did not appear that there were signs of foul play.

On Tuesday afternoon, Harris County Sheriff's Department Homicide Deputy R.S. Carrizal confirmed that a firearm had been found and recovered from Kaiser's car. The Harris County Medical Examiner's Office had not released a cause of death.

The 49-year-old Wisconsin native, who worked for The Eagle in the early 1990s, had been a well-known face in the Katy area for more than two decades, as both an educator and a journalist.

He covered the Houston Aeros hockey team and high school sports for the Houston Chronicle and later wrote about local sports for community newspapers in the Houston area before being hired as Morton Ranch's first tennis coach in 2004. Kaiser also taught journalism at Morton Ranch for three years.

Kaiser won the Texas Association of Soccer Coaches' Sportswriter of the Year Award last spring.

In August, Kaiser returned to the academic field as the head tennis coach and a U.S. history teacher at Katy High School.
