Scott Scores First PPI Touchdown

On Saturday night UConn runningback Zavier Scott, a prospect from the highly successful, inaugural 2017 DreamChasers Tour, scored his first NCAA touchdown with a reception against the Syracuse Orange.

With the Orange unable to keep the Huskies from getting into the redzone, they hoped to at least stop them from scoring. Facing first-and-goal after a long drive, QB Pindell took a shotgun snap with Scott on his left. Scott jetted past Pindell and into the flat unguarded, easily catching Pindell’s rollout pass to stroll past the pylon. Touchdown! Scott finding the endzone cut the Huskies’ deficit to ten.

The night was ultimately bitter-sweet for Scott as the Huskies lost 51-21. Scott solidified his role as the Huskies main receiving threat out of the backfield though, and maybe altogether. Scott caught seven passes on his way to earning 42 yards on a night when the Huskies’ quarterbacks only managed nineteen completions altogether. Scott is now tied with Hergy Mayala with the most receptions for the Huskies this season (16), and is fourth in total receiving yards. In the 4th quarter Scott was also given more opportunities to carry the ball, producing 22 yards on 4 runs. His yards after contact were impressive, showing great balance and keeping his feet moving to dig out the tough yards.

The game against Syracuse happened to be the first game all the Scotts could proudly attend now that the military family is back from Germany and stationed in America again. I think it’s safe to say that everybody at PPI is also extremely proud of what Scott accomplished in such a short amount of time. Scott’s touchdown is also the first PPI touchdown.
