Scott is the Region 9 rushing leader with 1,010 yards gained on 108 rushes (9.4 yards per rush) and he leads the state in rushing touchdowns with 19. His 144.3 yards per game average are the proof of consistency, with help of course from the Tiger offensive line that Scott always recognizes.
In an interview with KCSG Prep Central before the season started, Scott began his talk about describing the 2011 Tigers by mentioning the fellows who spring him free.
“I have full confidence in our line,” Scott said. “They like to hit. They like to move people around. That’s what we need.”
His teammates are appreciative of him as well. After Friday’s win over Pine View, Jared Edwards, another Hurricane running back, kept it simple in describing the senior Scott.
“Brian Scott is a hoss,” Edwards said. “I’m happy he’s on my team.”
Scott’s running style sometimes consists of dragging multiple defenders with him on carries. He seems to have some kind of low gear in his legs and the strength of a tractor.
His hoss-like running style, reminiscent of Earl Campbell (the Tyler Rose of Texas), is not planned, and cannot be explained—as far as Scott is concerned.
“It’s probably because I am slow,” Scott said. “Maybe it’s from mowing lawns or something like that. I have no idea what it is that makes me able to do that.
“I just take it one step at a time.”
He is not one-dimensional though. He can cruise down the field putting together many steps quickly. He has had four games with 50-plus yard runs, and six games with at least a 25-yard rush.
