Brayden Scott rushed for one touchdown and threw for another to lead Team USA to a 27-6 win over American Samoa in the IFAF Under-19 World Championship tournament in Austin, Texas, on Saturday night.
Scott, a Sequoyah High senior who a week ago verbally committed to play football at the University of Memphis next season, entered the game as the only quarterback on the United States’ roster after Missouri-bound Trent Hosick left the team last week for personal reasons. He directed a pair of scoring drives, one on his 1-yard run and the other a 7-yard touchdown to Demarcus Ayers. Overall, Scott completed 13 of 20 for 196 yards, including four passes on a fourth-quarter scoring drive capped by Tarean Folston’s 1-yard run.
Scott and Team USA plays Austria, a 40-0 winner over Panama, in the tournament at 8 p.m. Thursday.
