Florida A&M kicker Scott was once USF student



Florida A&M kicker Trevor Scott is entering his fourth season as the Rattlers' kicker, but his first experience with college football came as a regular student at USF in 2007, enjoying the Bulls' rise to No. 2 in the national polls.


Scott said he tried out for USF's soccer team but didn't make it, and had aspirations of walking on in football, even visiting USF's football office about that possibility, but didn't actually try out for football until he transferred to Florida A&M in 2008. The chance to return to Tampa and face the program he once hoped to be a part of this Saturday is something he's excited about.

"I'm actually looking forward to it," Scott said. "Not to say they didn't give me an opportunity, but just to go up against something I was originally trying to be a part of, it should be a good experience. ... It's a big stage, and we're looking forward to it. We're just looking to compete, and it should be a great game."

Scott, who will graduate next summer with a degree in public relations, has 35 field goals in his four seasons at FAMU and is 123-for-128 on extra points, including a 6-for-6 mark this season. He graduated from Jacksonville's First Coast High, but attended Largo High until his sophomore year and still has many relatives in Largo and New Port Richey who will be at Saturday's game.
