Offensive Coordinator
Mike Yurcich:

"Lindsey Scott is a dual-threat guy. He’s a very accurate passer who throws a very tight ball. Lindsey is a powerful runner with a shorter frame at about 5-11, but he’s a good 215 (pounds) and he’s a solid, sturdy runner. He can run the power run very well. He can run inside the tackles, and he has decent speed. So he can carry the ball very well. Lindsey is a very heady player, having won state titles. He knows what it takes to win. He’s a leader and he’s a very smart kid who really understands the game. He has good grades. His dad played in the Canadian Football League for several years. He’s in the hall of fame at Southern University."
