Sport and Performance Passions
Coach Scott started playing sports competitively at the age of five . From elementary school to high school, he played on town, travel, and school soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming, and track and field teams. He eventually lettered in soccer. At the age of 12, Coach Scott took up the game of golf and ‘caught the bug.’ He was the #2 man on the varsity golf team and went undefeated his senior year. During this time, he also caddied for hundreds of amateurs and professionals at various country clubs and local tournaments. While most competitive sports ended after high school, Coach Scott walked onto the varsity Lehigh University Men’s Golf team and played collegiately.
Musically, Coach Scott played clarinet from elementary through high school. He learned alto and baritone saxophone in middle school. His high school years consisted of playing all three instruments plus the bass clarinet in the Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Marching Band, and Orchestra.
