He was a track and football star in high school and adopted the nickname, "OJ". Scott was a charter member of the first soccer league in Warren, PA.

One of his favorite hobbies was playing cards, having a beer with a friend and an occasional Sunday afternoon poker game with the guys. He also enjoyed classic rock music and had opportunities to see some of the "legends" live to the delight of his daughter, Laidan.
