Petersburg High School Class of 2021 QB Meziah Scott (2021 QB 5-11 193) is the catalyst to the resurgence of Petersburg football. His sophomore campaign was nothing short of spectacular. The dual-threat signal caller accounted for over 2,300 yards of total offense and 28 touchdowns, leading the Crimson Wave to it’s first winning season since 2010.
As good as Scott is on the football field, he is even better in the classroom and in the community, boasting a 4.0GPA and leading various student-run organizations. The only thing missing at this point, is Scott’s first Division I offer. “ECU came in and spoke to us. Wake Forest came back and spoke to me. A few other schools… Temple, UVA, Duke, they came by the school and visited,” stated Scott.
Meziah and the rest of his teammates have been hard at work this off-season preparing to take the program to the next level.
“We’ve been focusing on mainly developing more flexibility in our hips and becoming faster. But we’ve also been trying to become better leaders because we have a lot of younger people on our team this year. And our main focus is to take a huge step forward and not regress backwards and make sure we don’t get satisfied with just a 7-3 record. We want to be able to get to the main goal, which is hopefully winning a state championship this year,” he explained.
On Saturday, Scott participated in recruit757’s Top 100 Showcase hosted by the Washington Redskins in Ashburn, VA. For more coverage of Scott at the event, check out his video here in the article.
