Scott receives all-state selection

In his career at Havelock High, Scott rushed for 6,096 yards and 87 touchdowns.

Bryant called Scott a hard worker who continues to do what’s necessary to improve.

“I think my blocking probably is where I have improved the most,” Scott said. “It’s because of a combination of me getting stronger and learning better angles and technique.”

Bryant recalls another aspect of the senior’s game in which he has been rock-solid.

“I think his ball security is amazing.” Bryant said. “His freshman year, he fumbled a few times, but since then, I can only think of one or two times he’s fumbled. That is usually unheard of for a back who gets the carries he does – 18 to 20 per game.”

Scott remains undecided on his college choice. He has said that N.C. State, Tennessee and South Carolina remain high on his list.

Scott, who fractured a bone in his hand late in the state championship game, missed out on playing in the Shrine Bowl as well as the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl.
