Scott earned two letters in baseball and made the
all-conference team in two different conferences. As a junior in
1986, he was named to the All-Lakeland Conference team after helping
lead the Middies to the championship. And as a senior the following
spring, he was named to the All-Erie Shore Conference team. The
Middies didn’t win the Erie Shore that season, but they won a
sectional championship and came within a run of advancing to the
Sweet Sixteen. They were edged by Southview, 3-2, in the district
championship game. They ended the season with a 16-5 record.
Scott played three years of varsity golf and was
named to the All-Erie Shore Conference team as a senior. The Middies
won the Erie Shore championship that year and qualified for the
district tournament. Scott still enjoys playing golf at Brentwood
Golf Club and elsewhere.
Scott played well enough at Midview to earn a
baseball scholarship to Ashland University, where he was a four-year
starter as an outfielder and first baseman, and earned an invitation
from the Indians to attend a tryout camp in Florida. “I had several
tryouts,” Scott said, “but none of them came to fruition”.
After excelling on the baseball diamond at Midview
and Ashland University, he became an even bigger star playing
fastpitch softball. In an eight-year career on softball travel
teams, he earned Amateur Softball Association (ASA) All-America
honors four times. From 1992 to 2000, Scott played for some of the
notable old teams in North-Central Ohio. They included the Ashland
Coors Lite team, the old Redhaw Oilers of Ashland County and the
Farmers Savings Bank team in Spencer, where he played two stints and
finished his softball career.
Scott is married to the former Julie Singleton,
’86, an All-Ohio gymnast at Midview. They have two children, a
daughter, Kylie, and a son, Jacob. The family lives in Grafton.
Scott has been employed for the past 14 years by the U.S. Postal
Service in Brunswick.
