Niagara Gazette — While some athletes oppose the notion of being a role model, Scott embraces the thought of setting a good example for folks in his hometown.
“I hear a lot of people talk about it, setting the precedent,” said Scott. “Really, it’s what you make it. It’s about the individual. It’s about us trying to have something, to bring something to Niagara Falls. I just want to be someone that inspired others. I feel that’s the mentality a lot of us have. It’s just all about having ambition. I just hope that my drive can push others to want to achieve more.”
As men of faith, Scott and Robinson believe there is more than just happenstance that brought them together. Both walked away from good paying jobs, Scott said, to answer a different calling.
“I left my job and came back home. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do,” said Scott. “I did have intentions of moving down to Atlanta but I came out to the gym just to work out, and I think God led me to Stacy.
“Ever since, anything Stacy has said, everything I’ve prayed for, it’s happening.”
Scott and his coach are now praying they’ll return from this weekend’s travel with a national title.
