Name:
Bernard Scott
School: Admiral Farragut Academy
Year: Senior
Sports: Football, track

Last month: Scott had the area's best performance at the Class A state meet in Jacksonville. He won the 100 and 200 meters, finished second in the long jump and ran a leg on the runnerup 4x100 relay team.

The 36 points he scored set a school record and helped the Blue Jackets finish fourth overall. That's a big accomplishment considering AFA has produced stellar track athletes such as Ed Manderson, Jules Fagan and Andrew Duff.

Future plans: Scott committed to play football at Assumption College in Massachusetts but is waiting to sign because there has been interest from other schools following his performance at the state track meet.

His own words: "It was just an unbelievable day," Scott said of the state meet. "I always look at the guys who have records at the school, especially Manderson (a former state record holder in the long and triple jump). He inspired me. I wanted to have my name on the wall, too."
