Ayrton Scott joined the SW Football team at exactly the right time to provide renewed interest and a winning spark. By the time his SW career was over, he was recognized for every honor including three-year letter winner; two years as captain; All-conference two years; conference MVP and candidate for Mr. Football, the only SW player ever so honored. In his senior year alone he was 77 of 127 passing for 1365 yards and 15 touchdowns along with 508 rushing yards and another 8 touchdowns. He finished his high school career with 2138 yards passing and 1083 yards rushing.
In addition to quarterback, he played safety on defense. He was selected for the All-State Viking Team. He also played on and captained the basketball team three years and for the championship Southside Rugby team.
He took his talents to Augsburg where he played for four years racking up a shelf full of honors including MIAC Most Valuable player in his senior year. He was selected for the All-MIAC team all four years. In his freshman year, he threw for 26 touchdowns and ran for 12 more setting the tone for his career. In 31 of his 40 games he had 300+ yards of total offense more than any player in MIAC history. In 13 of those games he went over the 400+ yard mark. He features prominently in the NCAA Division III record book in all the offense categories.
Ayrton credits the support of his Mom, his Grandma and his uncle for making him a better athlete and person. He beams with pride in his son, Ayrton Jaelynn Scott, whom he hopes will look up to his Dad as a football hero.
