Name: Oscar Scott
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Ultimately the goal is always to win the conference and win in the playoffs. While we didn’t accomplish that, I think we did create a culture and foundation which our coaching staff can build on in the future. Personally I wanted to be named all-conference and be seen as a leader on the team. I did the first and would like to believe I did the latter as well.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
Dedicated and bought in to the program. I’d like to think people would say I’m always one of the hardest workers in the room.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I generally watch the guards first half step. I think that if I can get a read before the second step I’ll be able to put myself in better position to make a play.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
My intelligence. I have realistic expectations and goals. I can also realize my mistakes and my shortcomings in order to improve both as a person and as a player.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Right now I’m just focused on doing what I need to do to be the best athlete I can be at the FAF senior bowl on December 21st.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I will do everything I can to help my teammates improve. I value the team to the highest degree.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
I’m just looking for an opportunity to play the game. I still have a couple good years left in me and I would still love to compete for a championship. All-conference, team captain, “Swede of the year”.
