game as a freshman.
He has also started at corner since his sophomore campaign. The 5'10" 180 pound blazer already held the school record for receptions before his senior season even started. He had 102 catches through 3 seasons. Stott was a 2nd team all-conferencewideout as a super sophomore and a 1st team all-league pick at receiver as a junior.
So how is he doing this year?

Brandon told us that they have been practicing things for Kings for a few weeks now and that they "will be ready to go". Stott's ultimate goal is to play college ball and has received some interest so far.
But this rocket can no doubt play at the next level he just needs the chance. His coaches rave about his work ethic and positive attitude on and off the gridiron.

Best wishes to he and his squad going ahead as they face off against Kings.
