Scott returns to Havelock from elite competition in Oregon

Published: Monday, July 8, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

“I was running over the middle to catch a pass and somebody hit me in my lower back with a forearm and I just tweaked something,” Scott said. “It’s already starting to feel much better though.”

During his time in Oregon at Nike headquarters, he competed in the Sparq ratings drills, one-on-ones, position-specific drills and the 7-on-7 tournament, parts of which were aired on ESPN.

Scott had the opportunity to listen to numerous NFL legends and current players, as well as reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.

While doing running back position drills, Scott caught the eye of a certain NFL player.

“During our position drills, LaMichael James told me that I looked the best he had seen going through the drills,” Scott said. “We got to talk and listen to Bo Jackson, Ndamukong Suh, Demaryius Thomas and other NFL guys, too.”

Scott caught a red-eye flight that departed at 10:20 p.m. back to Havelock and is already getting back into his normal routine.

“For the rest of the summer until we start practice, I am just going to keep working and training hard and get ready for the season,” Scott said.
