2016 Snapshot: Scott

Scott had a taste of the good life in 2015. The Eagles won a program best 10 games, grabbed its first District championship, had its first ever home playoff victory and made its first regional finals appearance. Head Coach Dan Woolley and his troops are back at the table and hungering for more of that sweet success.

Getting back to the top won’t be easy as Scott says goodbye to the winningest class in school history. It also saw graduation take seven of the eight Eagles starters from the linebacker and secondary units.

Since Woolley became the head coach one thing the Eagles have never lacked is size up front. That will be one of Scott’s biggest strengths again this year. Throw in a group of talented runners behind them and the offense should be formidable.

This is a big season for Scott, sustaining success is something that the players in the program are not accustomed to. This convocation of Eagles has the potential to soar to new heights. The winning ways for Scott are not going to be grounded just yet.

Class 4A, District 7
2015 RECORD: 10-3, 4-0 Class 4A, District 7
COACH: Dan Woolley (28-18 @ Scott, four years; 28-18 overall)

Nelson Perrin, Jr, QB – Perrin will move from running back to quarterback this fall. As a sophomore he gained 746 yards, averaged 10.6 per carry and found the end zone 10 times as the Eagles third option out of the backfield. “Nelson will be one of the most explosive players in NKY,” Woolley says.

Seth Yeary, Jr, OL/DL – The big and physical Yeary is cut from the same cloth of the Scott linemen that came before him.

Sam Dornbach, Jr, OL/DL – Another big and physical lineman that Woolley has come to groom for the program.

Jacob Durstock, Jr, C – The returning starter at center. Durstock is the anchor of Line

Ryan Muck, Sr, WR – Muck came on strong at the end of last season with three touchdowns catches in the Eagles three playoff games. He finished the season with 11 receptions for 163 yards and five scores.

Alex Thurza, Jr, RB/LB – Thurza should thrive in the Eagles Single Wing offense.

Josiah Orzali, Jr, DL – Coach Woolley is expecting to have a breakout junior campaign.

Last fall Eagles picked up their first playoff wins since 2002.

The start of the season will be a period of adjustment but the schedule does offer some great challenges before district play begins. Scott will face NewCath, Dixie Heights and Conner in the first four weeks. Those teams are all capable of bringing down the Eagles. Getting to 10 wins again is a tall order. Scott should still have a winning campaign despite the tough competition.

The past three seasons Scott has gone a combined 23-11. It is the most wins in a three-year stretch in school history.
