Scott is rare for modern football players, as he did not go to college, but went pro directly from Johnston High School. He signed as a free agent with the Shreveport Pirates (part of the CFL's failed expansion to the United States) and played 2 years (1994 and 1995) recording 3 sacks. He played the next 4 years with the B.C. Lions (67 games), twice being named an all star with 35 total sacks. He moved on to the Toronto Argonauts in 2000, playing three years there and getting 11 sacks in 30 games and, again, being named an all star twice. He played 2003 and 2004 with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (28 games and 5 sacks) and played 2 games with the Ottawa Renegades in 2005.

Scott was one of the most entertaining characters in the league. He was smiling from ear to ear on October 20, 2002 as Muhammad Ali rubbed his bald head at an Argo halftime tribute to the famous boxer.

He is also known to play Madden and cut it up like the best of em.
