The 2018 American Indoor National Champion in the men’s pole vault found himself living out a dream by representing Team USA at the Indoor World Championships in Birmingham, England. Scott has competed at the professional level and traveled the world to 11 different countries doing what he loves and competing against the best athletes in the world. Scott has made two appearances at the Olympic Trials finals, in 2016 and 2021 and holds a personable best mark of 5.83m / 19’1.5” in the event. 

An alumnus of University of North Carolina for his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and University of Indiana for his Master’s in Sport Management, Scott is currently in his 8th year coaching at High Point University as the Assistant Track & Field Coach. Among the 22 vaulters he coaches between collegiate and professionals, Sydney Horn has earned four 1st team All-American honors including becoming the 2022 Indoor NCAA Runner-up in the women’s pole vault. 

Most people coach after they have retired as an athlete, so it is unique for Scott to choose to do both simultaneously. He had an opportunity to begin a coaching career while still competing and decided to take it while also improving in his professional pursuits.

Sport Fuels Life for Scott because he enjoys helping others reach their potential and to not make the same mistakes he has made along his journey.
