Scott a weapon in many ways for Stall football

North Charleston—The Stall football team has gone 2-2 through the halfway point in the regular season, and a big part to their success early on has been the play of senior Juwan Scott

“He is a playmaker that can do it all,” head coach Joe Bessinger said.  “He’s averaging over 150 all-purpose yards each game so we just want to get the ball in his hands as often as possible.  We’ve had to be creative moving him around so he can do his thing.  He’s a senior, an Honor student, and I think he’s going to be a heckuva college football player.”

Scott has lined up all over the field, seeing time at running back, wide out, slot receiver and even wildcat quarterback.  He currently has 286 rushing yards, 184 receiving yards, 223 yards on punt and kick returns with 10 total touchdowns.

“All he needs is a crease.  He’s got great vision and makes things happen.  He’s a smart ball player.  A little bit of daylight and he can make things happen.  He’s getting 17 yards per touch, whether it’s rushing, receiving or in the return game,” Bessinger said.

Scott was primarily a defensive back during his career with the Warriors, but transitioned to the offensive side of the ball this fall.  At 5’9, 165 pounds, he doesn’t look intimidating.  However, looks can be deceiving and Bessinger hopes Scott gets the chance to showcase his skills at either the Shrine Bowl or North-South all-star game after the season.

“He’s been nominated for both and I hope he does (get selected).  The coaches have his film.  I’d put him up against a lot of playmakers in this area.  Some people say he’s undersized, but he’s well put-together.  I think he gets overlooked and I’m hoping he will get a shot,” Bessinger said.

Until then, Scott will continue to do what he’s always done and guide Stall to its first playoff berth since 2011.

“He’s not a real vocal leader.  He likes to lead by example,” Bessinger said.  “He’s not going to criticize his teammates.  He’s always willing to praise others rather than getting the praise on him.”
