Lindsey Scott Jr.

Scott, who committed to Syracuse on Monday, did a little bit of everything to help lead the Broncos to a 44-34 victory over Dutchtown High in a nondistrict game played at DHS. Scott accounted for 413 yards of offense. He ran for 202 yards and 3 TDs and completed 14 of 19 passes for 211 yards and 2 TDs.”

“I really didn’t have any idea how many yards I had until I read about it online after the game,” Scott said. “All I knew was we got into a bunch a third-and-longs and I had to do whatever it took to help my team won. Sometimes I had to run it and other times I thew the ball.”

Volleyball

Kelsey Cooke, Central

You don’t have to be the tallest player in order to be a big-time volleyball middle blocker. Central High’s Kelsey Cooke proves that point. The 5-foot-7 senior led the Division II Wildcats to a 2-0 record last week by compiling 12 kills, a .333 hitting percentage, 8 digs, 4 blocks and 2 service aces.

“I’m probably the smallest hitter on our team and I know I can’t hit it over and down on people,” Cooke said. “It’s all about placement for me. That’s what I’ve learned over the last year. I have to be able to hit the ball between blocks. I look for that open spot on the floor to hit it to and aim for it.”
