Wall Quarterback Eddie Scott Commits To Holy Cross


Wall Quarterback Eddie Scott has made his college choice official. He will be taking his talent to Holy Cross College where he has signed to continue playing quarterback.

Scott had a successful high school career, leading the Knights to a South Jersey Group III title in his first year as a starter during the 2016 season as a Junior. Scott made his decision final on Saturday, announcing via social media that he would be attending Holy Cross.

After putting much thought into this, Scott explained what led him to commit to the program.

“What sold me the most was coach Chesney. He is the kind of guy who brings energy to the room. Hearing him talk briefly, I want to win for him and for my teammates. In addition, the facilities that they have on campus are outstanding. They have hot and cold tubs, indoor football field, and a huge weight room. The environment is very exciting to be around. The coaches they brought in will really do whatever it takes to win and I want to be apart of a program where the focus is to win. Another thing I keep in mind is the academic end. They are in the Patriot League and are the most challenging out of them all. I want to challenge myself and set myself up for the future,” Scott explained.

As mentioned earlier, Eddie has signed to play quarterback for the university. For him, his main goal will be to get adjusted to the pace of play at the next level. Additionally, he will look to continually keep growing as a passer.

“They signed me as a QB, but I think it will definitely take some time getting used to. I think that the speed of the game is the biggest factor in the next level. I need to control the controllable though and give it all I have to make sure that I am ready for the next level. I often train with Steve Cluely who has the experience at the next level and his background has helped me tremendously. I think I will need to prepare at an all-time high which I am excited to do and I am looking forward to this next step,” Scott addressed when asked about adjusting from high school to college football.

Additionally, Eddie credits his coaches at Wall for giving him the skills that were needed to be recruited.

“My coaches are very experienced people. They have been through college and they have all played or coached at the next level. They have never pushed anything on me but have always provided me with all of the information regarding a school. My coaches have been a resource and a bridge to get me to the next level. They have tied these connections between me and the coaches. I feel like they truly want what is in my best interest and they work just as hard as I do to find the right spot. They’re also always there for any questions I have and give me a great answer,” Eddie Scott mentioned.

Last season, Holy Cross posted an overall record of 4-7, going 3-3 in Patriot League competition.
