PBR: What is your favorite subject in school and future major?
Scott: My favorite subject in school is anything related to science. My plan is to study Pre-Med as an undergraduate and move on to Med School. My current GPA is 3.8.

PBR: Do you play another sport?
Scott: I also play Football and Basketball. As a Sophomore I played on the Varsity Football Team and was a captain on the JV Basketball team before being moved up to Varsity at the end of the season.

PBR: Fun fact about yourself ( something unique or people would not expect)
Scott: When I am not on the field, I volunteer for Special Olympics throughout the year, serve on the Student Sportsmanship Council for MHSAA, and participate in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at FGR.

PBR: What can you bring to a college baseball program?
Scott: What I could bring to a college baseball program is a responsible hard working student that the coaches would not have to worry about getting the job done, in the classroom and on the field.

PBR: What are your baseball accolades (Tournament championship, all league, etc)
Scott: I was a starter as a Freshman on the Varsity team which made it to the final 8 in the State playoffs. Over the years I have been part of many tournament wins with Coach O’Keefe in Saline.

PBR: How's your HS season going?
Scott: Coach Lenhoff is doing another great job with our team. We are off to a 15-3-2 start and have clinched the top spot in our division of the Catholic League. I am really looking forward to playing at Comerica on 5/11 in the Catholic League Semis and hopefully in the Catholic League Championship game at Jimmy Johns on 5/24. In the 20 games played we have played, I am batting .353 while playing mostly 3rd and 1st base.

PBR: Who do you play for in the summer?
Scott: I am playing for Legacy 16u out of Brighton. This will be my first season playing for Jason Ladd and I am really excited to be in the dugout with him.
