At what point does racking up accolade after accolade just start getting boring? That’s a question for Lindsey Scott, the 2016 quarterback recruit for the Syracuse University football team who keeps piling up the honors. The latest is having been named Mr. Football for the state of Louisiana, given by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Scott was previously named the Louisiana Class 5A Offensive Player of the Year (for the second year in a row) as well as the Gatorade Player of the Year in his home state after putting up gaudy numbers both passing and rushing the football and leading his Zachary High team to a state championship. The 5-foot-11 gunslinger racked up a ridiculous 5,000 total yards of offense to go along with 61 total touchdowns, and led his team to a 14-1 season.
Scott recently put together a strong performance in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl alongside future teammate Moe Neal, and during his senior season threw for more than 3,000 yards with just five interceptions and a completion rate of 64%. In the state championship game – a decisive 46-12 stomping – he accounted for five touchdowns and more than 300 total yards of offense.
