10/16/2012 - Tremayne Scott missed the last two games due to a foot injury and is out indefinitely. The senior was one of two players to lead the team with 3.5 sacks in 2011. He has nine total tackles in three games this fall and junior Nic Barber is filling in admirably for him. - College Injury Report

08/06/2012 - CBSSports.com 2012 Preseason All-MAC Team, Defensive End: Tremayne Scott, Ohio - Like Progar, Scott found himself on the MAC's second team following the 2011 season. He only had 3.5 sacks and a quarterback hit last season, but he was also able to make 62 tackles last season. Which isn't a total to be overlooked from the defensive end position. Also considered: Progar's teammate at NIU, Alan Baxter, nearly made his way onto the team as well. There's also Western Michigan's Paul Hazel and Freddy Bishop, Toledo's T.J. Fatinikun and Kent State's Jake Dooley. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com

07/25/2012 - Scott earned All-MAC second-team honors last season, and has been named to this year's College Football Performance Awards Defensive Lineman Watch List. The senior is one of 35 players nationally - just three from the MAC - who were selected to the Watch List for the 2012 CFPA Defensive Lineman Trophy. But Scott believes his best football is still ahead of him. "I want to do better than I did last year," he said. "I want to exceed my tackles and tackles for loss from last year. And the biggest of them all is I want to exceed my sacks. Three-and-a-half is not enough to me, so that's my personal goal to work on my pass rushing. I'd like to double that number." Scott is also on the NFL radar. His size and athleticism have drawn interest from the league, but he says his pass-rushing skills - specifically, his explosion off the ball - is where his focus has been during summer workouts. His new defensive line coach, Jesse Williams, who moved over from New Mexico State, has Scott working on power cleans and squats in the weight room and speed, agility and explosion on the field. After Scott watched former Celtic teammates Antonio Allen (New York Jets) and John Brantley IV (Baltimore Ravens) catch on with NFL teams last spring, Scott believes he could be the next Trinity Catholic alum to make the leap to the pro level. "I've stayed in touch with those guys throughout our college career," Scott said. "Seeing what they could do a year ahead of me, it gives me a boost and a lot of confidence that it actually can be done with some hard work. "I don't want to sound overconfident, but I always expected to get a shot at the NFL. I've been working pretty hard ever since I left Ocala, and that's been my goal." - Byron Saucer, Ocala.com

12/06/2011 - 2011 ALL-MAC SECOND TEAM (MEDIA): Down Lineman - Tremayne Scott, Ohio, has been selected All-MAC Second Team for the 2011 college football season as voted by the MAC News Media Association. Scott has played in all 12 games and is ranked third on the team in tackles with 55. He also has a team-best 3.5 sacks and 8.0 tackles for loss on the year. - Ohio football
