Pasadena, Texas CB Scott loves to press
Question of the Day
For a glimpse of just how effective a cornerback Leroy Scott is, check out his interception totals.
He only has a couple in his entire high school career.
“They don’t throw at him much,” said C.L. Whittington, his coach at South Houston High School. “That’s a deceiving aspect of his stats.”
Opposing quarterbacks aren’t about to be deceived. They know better than to challenge the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Scott, who has verbally committed to play college football for the Texas Longhorns, his state’s biggest program. Until then, Whittington wants to get as much as he can out of Scott, who occasionally plays running back and returns kickoffs as well.
“He’s going to surprise a lot of people,” Whittington said.
Scott’s all-around athletic ability is a challenge for any opposing wide receiver. This is one defensive back who doesn’t shy away from the physical component of the game.
“He loves to press coverage,” Whittington said. “He can play press the whole game.”
“Working on his hands _ he wants to become more consistent,” Whittington said. “He’s come a long way.”
If Scott’s hands do improve, perhaps that paltry interception total will increase this season.
If the ball is anywhere near him, that is.
“Like I say,” Whittington said, “he doesn’t get the ball thrown to him as much.”
