Winning championships is the name of the game. Free agent quarterback Bryan Scott has done that at a high level. Scott most recently led The Generals of the Spring League to an undefeated season and the 2020 championship. Scott was named the season’s most valuable player.
A accomplished passer and vocal leader, Scott recently spoke exclusively with Broadway Sports Media about his unique journey, and what he brings to the table as a QB prospect.
JM: You most recently played in The Spring League. You beat out former Titans QB Zach Mettenberger for the starting job. You led your team to an undefeated season and captured the 2020 championship. You’re actually undefeated (7-0) as a professional starting quarterback. What was this recent experience in The Spring League like for you?
BS: First of all, it was just a blessing to play football again. When you train as hard as I have, you’re just looking for an opportunity. COVID-19 swept in and left a lot of professional athletes in limbo. I wasn’t sure if I was going to play football in 2020.
To be able to go out there and serve as a leader for our team, it meant everything to me. Playing the game of football is a blessing. I love this game so much. To lead our team to an undefeated season and championship, the end result was terrific. We had a special team. We had a bunch of great coaches. The entire experience was a special one.
I’ve been very blessed to win championships in my lifetime. Some of my teammates had never won a championship before 2020. I was thrilled for them. We got to experience an undefeated season together. It was an awesome season.
For me personally, I think it’s going to propel me to the next level. I’m excited about that. 2020 was an awesome year for me. It was an unbelievable experience.
JM: You were also named the MVP of the league. I imagine that was a special honor for you.
BS: When you win an MVP award, anybody will tell you that it’s a total team effort. From my coaches to my trainers to my family, I’ve had a lot of help along the way. I had a bunch of terrific teammates that put their faith in me. We gave our all every single day. An MVP award is truly a team award in my eyes.
It definitely feels good, especially as a small school guy. To go out there and beat guys from Michigan, Ohio State and so on, it’s a good feeling (laughs). I beat out the CFL passing leader. I wanted to go out there and prove that I could be the best player in the league. I have a ton of confidence in myself. It doesn’t matter where I went to college. I’m gonna go out there and put my best foot forward.
JM: Your performance caught the eyes of the NFL. You recently worked out for the Indianapolis Colts. What was that like?
BS: That was a cool experience. I was very appreciative of the opportunity. We’ll see what happens next. I’m excited for what’s going to happen in the next few weeks. I’m just taking things day by day. Any time you get an NFL opportunity, it’s a great experience. I’m looking forward to being on an NFL roster. I plan to prove myself during training camp and preseason. I’m ready for this next step.
JM: How would you describe the way you play the QB position?
BS: I get the very best out of my teammates. That comes first and foremost. That’s the most important thing about my game. When I step into the huddle, those guys believe in me. They believe that we’re going to win. They know that I’ve put in the time and prepared myself to the best of my ability. I take winning very seriously. I bring a sense of comfort to the huddle. I have their backs out there and I know they have mine as well.
Secondly, I make good decisions with the football. I have a good arm. I’m accurate. I’ve always been close to the 70% completion mark. That’s important. I’m efficient. I don’t turn the football over. I give my team the best chance to win on any given day.
Lastly, I can extend plays with my feet. I’m not necessarily a big runner, but I can escape pressure and make plays with my arm outside the pocket. Those are probably the three traits that I hang my hat on.
JM: That’s a great way to describe how you play the game. I’ve appreciated your time today. In closing, what’s next for Bryan Scott?
BS: Whichever NFL team takes a chance on me, you’re getting somebody that’s gonna work really hard. I’m gonna get the best out of my teammates. I’m gonna be a leader both on and off the field. I’m gonna win football games. That’s what it’s all about. I’ve been a winner at every level I’ve competed at. I’ve had an incredibly blessed journey and I look forward to what’s next.
You’re gonna get a winner and a leader.
