Once-shy LSU QB Lindsey Scott Jr. brings character, media savvy to the Tigers as freshman

Lindsey Scott’s meteoric rise to unseen peaks this winter left in his wake a trail of not only frustrated opponents, but a growing number of cameras.

As talented as some of those defenses may have been, there’s little question the latter would’ve been a more daunting proposal to his younger self.

But the once undersized and quiet quarterback found, with his stride, his swagger en route to becoming not only a heralded leader, but a media darling now beginning his first preseason camp at LSU.

“It’s funny because some of my teammates and my classmates, when they think of me, they jump straight to 11th grade when things kind of started to get up and running,” says Scott, who graduated this May after leading Zachary to its first state championship in December. “But people like (lineman) Trevor Jackson — Trevor knew me when I was really little — they know that in middle school I was really shy.

“It was always easy with my friends and stuff, but meeting new people — and don’t even get me started on girls. I couldn’t walk up to girls and talk to ’em. Me and my friends would be walking in the mall or something, and I’d say something like, ‘Oh, that girl’s cute.’ And they’d say, ‘Oh, go talk to her.’ And I was kind of like, ‘Don’t even worry about all that.”

From LSU to SMU: Trey Quinn poised to capitalize on second chance

“Incomplete” is typically among the last words a wide receiver wants to hear.

And yet one an ardent, if at times mercurial, fan base can try its damnedest to make echo — even in its own players’ ears.

The definition is far different for Trey Quinn at the moment, though.

Two years at home-state LSU probably saw less warm, fuzzy fairytale feelings for the national record-setting Lake Charles product than overblown scrutiny, challenging frustration and resulting lessons learned.

But those chapters have far from closed the book on Quinn, who will have two years of eligibility remaining at SMU after redshirting this fall.

The change of scenery and offense brings a world of fresh potential for an athlete who started seven games as a true freshman in college football’s most highly touted league in 2014 — a new beginning for which he and his family can’t help but admit their excitement.

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.”
