Short and Insufficient Profile: Joe Scott

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.

We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

Joe Scott

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–6’1”

Weight–280

40–N/A

Year–Freshman

Position–Defensive Tackle

Hometown–Louisville, KY (Central)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Jason Taylor. First defensive lineman with two first names that came to mind.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: All-District three straight years. Tallied 238 tackles in his high school career. That seems like a lot.

Something we made up about him: He is directly related to all of these people: Joe Scott, Joe Scott, Joe Scott, Joe Scott, Joe Scott, Joe Scott, Joe Scott, and Mr. Belding.

Items of legitimate interest: Joined the team as a walk-on, and impressed the coaches with his instinct and effort. Made 3 tackles in this year’s Spring Game.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Fourth on the depth chart, but he has a lot of football ahead of him.
