Born in Chicago, Scott spent his formative years growing up in North Carolina.
Before his death, Scott accepted the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPY Awards in 2015. He spoke about his fight with cancer and emphasized that it was his two daughters, Taelor and Sydni, that kept him fighting: “Taelor and Sydni, I love you guys more than I will ever be able to express. You two are my heartbeat. I am standing on this stage here tonight because of you.”
