Lorenzo Scott Jr. has played some form of athletics since he was 7-years-old, playing most of his childhood sports through Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club. While there, Lorenzo played football, baseball and basketball between the ages of 10 and 14.
His parents Lorenzo Sr. and Bonnie Scott helped guide Lorenzo Jr. while he was attending Lutheran High School North. Lorenzo Jr made All-ABC League in all three sports. While playing basketball and baseball the teams were very successful. He successfully led the football team to a Missouri State High School title.
