Profile
One of the most popular Buccaneer players ever not least for the fact that he appeared for many years on Buc radio with Gene Deckerhoff as the colour commentator on all Buc game broadcasts. Originally drafted out of Florida, Scot spent the best part of five of his seven seasons as a starting inside linebacker and can count an interception off Joe Montana amongst his game credits. Had been a highly-touted player coming out of college but suffered a head injury in his senior season that dropped his draft position.
