Bryan Scott is something of a spring football legend. A division III prospect who was likened to Aaron Rodgers, he has inspired many with his story despite his humble beginnings at a small school. The next step in the legacy of Bryan Scott lies in Las Vegas.
Implications of This Move
What does this mean? Well if we are being honest I believe this throws the idea of a two-quarterback system out the window. Simply evaluating where each quarterback is at in their career and where they left off, my personal belief would be that there is a clear pecking order.
QB1: Bryan Scott
QB2: Luis Perez
QB3/COP: Jalan McClendon
At the very least the Vipers are in for the most intriguing quarterback battle I have seen in a long time.
Safe to say this quarterback room is built on names that will leave Spring Football Fans from all corners intrigued. Even reaching the arena fans with McClendon sure to draw fans from his time with the NAL, and AAL.
Scott most recently served as the starting quarterback for the Bart Andrus-led Philadelphia Stars in the USFL. Scott had played with Andrus in the past during their time in The Spring League, having never lost a game. Then he followed him as the first selection of the Stars in the 2022 USFL Draft.
Before suffering an injury in week three Scott looked like he would be the top quarterback in the league. Per Statscrew.com Scott completed over 70% of his passes, throwing for 558 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. Scott isn’t regarded as a mobile quarterback, but he has the mobility to run when needed as showcased by his 9 carries for 23 yards and 1 touchdown in just three games. If Scott had continued this pace throughout the 2022 season, he would have produced 1,860 yards, and 16 touchdowns to just 7 interceptions. Now with a new league springing up in 2023 Scott has decided to place himself in a new offense. Could it prove to be a good thing?
The Duane Taylor Effect
We recently learned that Duane Taylor, formerly the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator at Alabama A&M, has led high-flying offenses in the past. I’ve highlighted the steps Aqeel Glass took under his tutelage in previous articles. For those that didn’t catch it, you can expect Coach Taylor to continue Scott’s development helping him get better year after year.
Scott recently was spotted at the Jordan Palmer camp so we knew there was a good chance he would end up with the XFL. There were even whispers as to where he would land, but nothing could be officially announced until today. Now we know for certain.
When asked about his time working with Palmer, Scott said “Yes, He’s the best coach I’ve ever been around. He coaches it unlike anyone else in the country. He helped me a lot. Hope my game shows that.” Something tells me he will soon feel similarly about coach Taylor.
