Scott deserves chance to be great
It is easy to like Bernard Scott. Quiet, soft-spoken and modest, he isn’t your typical football star.
And yes, though you probably have never heard of him, he is a star.
The Vernon native is one of the most productive backs in NCAA Division II history. Justifiably, this past weekend he was awarded the coveted Harlon Hill Trophy, known to most as the Division II Heisman.
“The kid is a very interesting as a prospect because he has some major pluses and some major minuses,” an AFC scout said. “You can’t deny the numbers; you cannot, under any circumstances, discount the kid’s production. But …”
“If he hadn’t had some of those issues he has had, he would be a draftable kid, but (teams) are going to be more hesitant,” the scout said. “He has great vision, patience, and balance, and to put up those kinds of numbers is remarkable, so he’ll still get a shot.”
