Scott grew up in New Port Richey, Florida and earned a degree in biology from Texas Christian University. He lives in Austin, Texas and is the 2-time defending Heavyweight Boxing Champion of Austin.
Scott created the Underdog Podcast in 2017 when inspired by his friend and college football teammate, Phil Taylor, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer at the age of 23. Phil responded to his life-altering diagnosis with optimism and faith in a greater purpose. Phil was a role model to many because his selfless demonstration of the fighting underdog spirit inspired others to respond to adversity in the same manner when life doesn’t make sense.
Unfortunately, the cancer progressed to Stage 4 and Phil passed away in September 2018 after a two-year battle, but his legacy lives on.
