A fierce competitor, the small, but tough, Tom Scott thrived under pressure.

During the 1982 season when the Edmonton Eskimos offense was struggling, teammate Danny Kepley recalled that Scott was a marked man by his opponents.

They broke his nose; they knocked him around, and they double teamed him, but he just kept catching the ball. That kind of tenacity earned him the honour as the runner-up for Schenley's Most Outstanding Player in 1982.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 1998 as a player.
