Longmeadow's Scott commits to Middlebury

Former Longmeadow High two-way football star Patrick Scott has committed to Middlebury College for next fall, his father (and Longmeadow assistant) William Scott wrote in an email to ESPNBoston.com.

Patrick spent this past fall as a post-graduate at Northfield-Mt. Hermon

"Patrick is excited about going Middlebury & playing for Coach Bob Ritter," the elder Scott wrote. "The main reason for the extra year was to put him in a position to qualify academically to go to a NESCAC school."

At Longmeadow, Patrick was a two-year starter at both left offensive tackle and defensive tackle, and captained the 2010 squad that won the Western Mass Division 1 Super Bowl, helping the cause with a 40-yard fumble return for a touchdown. He was a two-time AA League All-Star, and was also on the 2008 Super Bowl champion squad.
