Louisville Commit L.J. Scott: SportsCenter #1 Top Play


Every night on SportsCenter, the top 10 plays from around the country are played. Every day America submits what they think should be the ten best plays in America. Being #1 is something CardNation is getting use to and on this night it wouldn’t be any different. L.J. Scott, a 5-10 224 pound RB out of Marion Harding High School in Marion, Ohio leaped over a defender and rumbled to the end zone for what appeared to be a 50 yard TD. Scott, a Louisville commit, was flagged for the play because hurdling is illegal in High School football in Ohio. I asked LJ what it meant to him being on SportsCenter Top 10. “ It meant more to me that kids who look up to me were happy more than my own happiness if that makes sense. Marion is a great town but unfortunately its been out shadowed by negative light lately. It was a team effort though, but I’m just more excited kids who look up to me know that great things are possible with God and hard work!!” said LJ. When I asked his thoughts about everyone who helped to get the video on he said “to everyone who helped it go viral I can’t thank them enough… to the city of Marion, to Cardnation!! I cant explain the appreciation of everything! I cant wait to be a cardinal but im not in a hurry to leave my beloved Marion!!!

This kid is a special kid and that’s become the standard of what Coach Strong recruits. A very humble and Outstanding young man. CardNation we are lucky. I told him we will hopefully see him make more Top 10’s as a Card. Below is the clip, Enjoy!
