Soul brings back Philly native Sean Scott

By John McMullen

Philadelphia, PA (The Phanatic Magazine) The Soul re-signed Philadelphia native Sean Scott on Friday.

The linebacker/wide receiver, a fan favorite over the first four years in Philadelphia, rejoins the Soul after spending the first part of this season with the Cleveland Gladiators.

In one game with the Gladiators this season, Scott recorded one-half tackle after spending the first six games of the season on injured reserve.

Scott had spent his first four seasons in the league with the Soul before departing for Cleveland in the offseason. Last year with the Soul, Scott had 47 catches for 526 yards with eight touchdowns as a wide receiver. On the defensive side of the ball, he had 17 1/2 tackles and one sack.

For his career, Scott has made 261 catches for 3,043 yards with 63 TDs, while rushing for 119 yards and nine scores. He has also recorded 126 1/2 tackles, two sacks and three interceptions in four-plus seasons in the AFL.

Scott, 29, resides in Philadelphia and attended Archbishop Carroll High School in Radnor. He was a four year letter winner at Millersville University, earning All-PSAC honors each season. He set school records for longest TD reception (91 yard) and most receiving yards in a game (227). He set the NCAA record for TDs by a freshman with 13 and set Millersville career records with 240 catches for 3,293 yards, and tied the school mark with 27 TD receptions.

Scott replaces big-play linebacker Rod Davis on the roster. Davis, a former member of the Minnesota Vikings and Carolina Panthers, was placed on injured reserve with a left elbow injury suffered during last Monday's win over Columbus and is out indefinitely.

Davis has 23 1/2 tackles, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions this season, starting all eight games at the JAC position.
