He was fortunate to have played with a great group of boys, who played together for years. In 1990, when Scott was a sophomore in high school, this group won the 5A State High School Baseball Championship. Scott was the centerfielder on this team.
Scott was the centerfielder on the 1991 El Dorado Legion team that won the AA American Legion State Championship. This team included several of the same boys that he had played his entire career.
