Scott McAdoo's Wrestling History - II

Fall Of 1997:

Scott took three weeks off in the month of August and then in September he returned to his regular Monday/Wednesday attendance of the Calvert High School pre-season practices and the Tuesday/Thursday Southern Maryland Wrestling Club practices. This was especially difficult because he also decided to try out for football for the first time. Impressively, he would go straight from football practice to wrestling practice four nights a week. Scott took to football immediately and, despite his lack of experience, established himself as a starting outside linebacker and the second team quarterback. All the while, he continued to maintain his honor roll status in school.

On weekends, he would usually have a football game on Friday night, football practice on Saturday and then attend a wrestling tournament on Sunday. He attended seven pre-season tournaments during September through November in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware. These tournaments were his first off season tournaments to be wrestled at the high school level... no more cadet wrestling. He immediately took 1st place in his first tournament: The Delaware Fall Classic in New Castle, Delaware. In the finals, he defeated another young man from Maryland, Michael Light, who had placed 2nd in the 1997 Maryland State Independent High School Championships. He then captured another 1st place at the Maryland Fall Open. He placed 2nd at the Maryland Fall Classic (he defeated the #2 ranked wrestler in the state, Roy Orr, on his home mat in the process) and 2nd again at the Thanksgiving Classic at State College, Pennsylvania losing only to Derrick Whitby of New Jersey. He also finished 4th at the tough Mid-Atlantic Fall Championships, 3rd and 4th at two other tournaments and he had one tournament in which he did not place.

December 9, 1997:

Scott is now a 16 year old junior with the goal of winning the Maryland high school state title this year in the 152 pound weight class. The first competition of the year; The Chopticon Braves Inivitational, saw Scott as the #2 seed in an 18 team field. He won the tournment by pinning the #1 seed in the finals and, at the same time, launched his quest for his first high school state title.
