LSU QB Lindsey Scott’s ‘stupid’ work ethic, coming of age: From cottage cheese to college scholarship

The exchange is now almost as routine as the workout regiment that once concerned his new coach.

Lindsey Scott Jr. shakes his head and rolls his eyes as teammates Douglas Coleman and Kellton Hollins flaunt small bags of chips and cookies.

The Zachary wide receiver and offensive lineman — bound for Texas Tech and TCU, respectively — even tease that they’ll pose and send pictures of the quarterback with the snacks to his father.

But, by now, Scott has embraced and taken ownership of his focused diet, just as he did the more physical aspects of his relentless preparation techniques long ago.

“We’re strict with it certain times of the year,” says Scott, who signed with nearby LSU in February. “This is one of those times, going into the summer. My friends joke about it all the time, because they’ll go, ‘Hey, Lindsey, you wanna go to Wingstop?’ And then they’ll say, ‘Oh, never mind. You can’t come!’

“But, I mean, I’m used to it, and I like the food. It’s fun because you can get creative at times. Eating is always a big component of healthy living and working out. It’s a part of my life and something I’m used to. It’s my thing.”

Or maybe not….

Jerit Roser taking pictures“You’ll be back,” Sean Fox told me just a few weeks ago on his radio show as we discussed my venture away from a sports journalism industry far more frustrating and taxing at times than many people outside of it ever realize.

The hectic world where I’d lived — and, I think it’s probably fair to say, thrived — for three years at The Daily Reveille at LSU, two and a half years at The News-Star in Monroe and then the past nearly four years at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

I told pretty much everyone with whom I spoke about the career move that “I’ll still be around in some capacity.”

And here — other than me still megaphoning recruiting commitments via Twitter around the priorities of my new job — is my first real sign of backing that up.
