Scott started wrestling when he was just 7 years old after being introduced to the sport by his family. After trying the sport, he instantly fell in love with it, loving the high intensity practices and the level of effort required. He loves the pressure the sport brings, knowing that everything coming down to take a Win lies on his shoulders. Scott loves the discipline required, and how matches are 1v1, elevating the level of effort required. 

Scott joined the Army to become both a better person, and a better athlete with the help of the World Class Athlete Program, and loves being able to inspire others to follow their dreams in the military.

The danger is not to set the goal too high and fail to reach it. It’s to set your goal to low and reach it. - George St. Pierre
