Tanner Scott - Kress

Why Honored: Scott, who was born without a right arm below the elbow, is a three sport athlete out of Kress High School. He played football, basketball, and baseball, excelling in all three. 

In his first year to play football since seventh grade, Scott was named first team District 2-A Six-Man at wide receiver. He led the team in receiving with 400 yards, 19 catches, and 10 touchdowns. He also was the teams kicker and made 33-of-43 extra points. 

In basketball, Scott was a three-year starter and averaged 10 points, nine rebounds, and five assists per game his junior year. He was named honorable mention guard for District 3-A Division II.

Scott starts at first base for the Kangaroos baseball team, and usually bats anywhere between second and sixth in the lineup. 

Quotable: "It felt good to be honored but that was the first time I've ever had to talk in front of a group that big."
