RB Scott returns, plays well

One of the few surprises in Saturday’s Green and Gold Bowl was the fact Darrell Scott was back out on the field, just a week after suffering a calf injury early in the spring game that USF coach Skip Holtz originally feared would sideline the junior running back for a few weeks.
Scott not only was able to play through the injury but performed well, rushing 11 times for 75 yards and a touchdown, a 2-yard score in which he bounced outside and dove in near the corner of the end zone on his final carry of the scrimmage.
“It was great to see Darrell come out here and run, because last week he turns and what, it was the first or second series, I mean, all of the sudden he was out of the game,” Holtz said. “Darrell’s missed a lot of football and he’s got some rust on him. He’s got a load of talent, but having him come out here and get this many reps is invaluable to him and invaluable to this football team.
“I thought it showed some courage on his part, with what he’s been going through with his calf muscle, and just the way that he’s treated it this week and the treatment that he’s gotten, I think he’s done a nice job.”
Outside of the touchdown run, Scott’s biggest play came late in the first half when he burst through the heart of the defense on a draw play for a 32-yard gain - the longest running play of the scrimmage. It helped set up a 45-yard field goal by Maikon Bonani.
“You can see that he has a little talent,” offensive coordinator Todd Fitch said. “He’ll definitely be a factor for us if he continues doing what he’s doing. He’s had a good spring. We’ve been pleased by him the whole time, this whole spring.”
