    Where is Leonard Scott?
    Did he quit the sport after his college career over Tenesee?

    Re: Where is Leonard Scott?

    I think he is trying to play pro football. He not near the football player he is in track. If you saw him at Tennessee he was just a kick returner and a wr that ran a deep route to open up underneath patterns. He needs to be like John Capel and come back home to track full time.

      Scott is now in the NFL, as a wide receiver. He went undrafted, but the Pittsburgh Steelers picked him up this past spring.

        ESPN's draft-tracker wasn't too high on his chances going in:

        <<Positives: Can return. Excellent timed speed for a returner. Gets separation and has downfield speed. Gives good effort and works.


        Negatives: Tiny-framed, skinny receiver who does not have great hands and loses concentration. Lacks football intelligence and vision. Track guy playing football. Lacks agility to break down and change directions. Needs to learn how to drop his weight running routes and beat the jam. Has straight-line speed and lacks awareness. Inconsistent hands.>>

        Sounds like Jimmy "Oops" Hines reincarnate, but I wish him well.

          Until track starts paying NFL money, we will be asking about a whole lot of track stars besides Leonard Scott. Peace.

            And we all know that'll never happen. Average track athletes would be lucky to make 22 percent of what the NFL pays its average goofball, but I'm not complaining because I still have love for the sport and I'm determined to stick it out. The one thing we all share in this sport(Whether you're a miler or sprinter)is passion for what we do and that in itself is priceless.

                  Just remember, Had Skeets not gone to the 49ers, Roger Kingdom does NOT become a two time Oly champ.

                  Some other examples:
                  Bob Hayes (why is he not in the Pro Football HOF????)
                  Henry Carr
                  Ron Brown
                  Willie Gault

                        Still remember Monday Night Football, September 1985? Giants v. 49ers in the Meadowlands. Giants cornerback Elvis Patterson (nicknamed "toast") goes for the interception of a Joe Montana pass to Renaldo Neimiah. Misses it! "Skeets" gets the pass and goes 80 yards down the sideline, with no one in sight. One of the greatest moments ever on Monday Night Football. Peace.

                          First player to ever score a td on MNF was former Texas Southern 9.3 sprinter Homer Jones. Jones was one of only seven guys to ever beat Bob Hayes in a race. He beat him in a 200.

                              sure, the top footballers make scads more than the top tracksters, but how much more does an undrafted receiver make compared with an olympic-caliber world-ranked sprinter? how many top sprinters/hurdlers (i.e. those with realistic shots at national titles) have been able to become top-5 nfl players at their position? i am unsure, but it is likely rather rare. then there is the whole issue of maybe getting slightly better pay as a forgotten football player at the cost of fame (and possible fortune) as a world-ranked sprinter.
