Zachary High School quarterback Lindsey Scott Jr. accepted the Louisiana Farm Bureau/Louisiana Sports Writers Association's Mr. Football award on Wednesday at the Farm Bureau office.

Scott tallied 5,002 total yards and 61 touchdowns to lead Zachary to the Class 5A state title last month at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

He is the first Baton Rouge area winner since 2011 when Dutchtown's Landon Collins, now of the New York Giants, won the award.
