Billy Scott


Name: Billy Scott
Position: Sports Editor
Graduation Year: 2021
What's up! My name is Billy Scott, and I am a staff writer for SCO! I am a member of the Dual Enrollment Program, meaning I am in the graduating class of 2021 at both Montgomery College and at Blair. I love rap music, my favorite rappers are Chance the Rapper, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. I'm a big Washington sports fan, but you'll also catch me cheering on Liverpool for soccer. I aspire to be an ESPN analyst/anchor in the future. When I'm not writing for SCO, I'm probably listening to music, making a Capitol Hoops highlight video, walking my dogs, playing for Blair's co-ed volleyball team or watching some Netflix or Hulu.
