2011 Season

C.J. Scott runs 91-yards for six

Former Toombs County Bulldog C.J. Scott ran 91-yards for a touchdown in the Shorter Hawks 42-16 win at Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky. That was the fourth longest run from scrimmage in school history. Scott's longest run as a Bulldog was 80-yards, at Dublin, in his senior season (2009). That run got Shorter coach Phil Jones's attention when he watched a video of C.J.'s senior highlights. Watch the run

Scott carried the ball seven times for 106-yards at Union and he leads the Hawks with 693-yards and the fullback is averaging 6.7 yards per carry with four touchdowns. Former Bulldog Demery Hawkins had 10 tackles and forced a fumble. Hawkins, a linebacker, leads the Hawks in tackles with 99. He is averaging 11 per game.

2010 Season

C.J. has career day

Freshman C.J. Scott ran for a career-high 142-yards on 22 carries and scored on a 43-yard TD run in the opening half of Shorter's season ending 36-26 loss at Bethel in Tennessee. C.J. wrapped up his first season at the NAIA school as the Hawks' fourth leading rusher with 337 yard on just 57 carries. He averaged 5.9 yards per run and socred five touchdowns. C.J. talks about his big game and his first season at Shorter Audio

C.J. Scott finally gets his chance

and scores 4 TDs in Shorter win

 

For the first eight games in his freshman season at Shorter University former TCHS Bulldog C.J. Scott had been watching more than he had been playing. Scott had played in only three games and rushed for just 44 yards on 19 carries. Finally, in a home game against 22nd ranked Webber International the fullback got his chance and C.J. dazzled. He carried the ball 10 times for 138 yards and scored four touchdowns on runs of 46, 17, 35 and 18 to tie Shorter’s single-game record for rushing TDs. Shorter, coming off a heartbreaking 21-14 loss to the University of the Cumberlands, improved to 5-4 on the season with a 42-14 victory over the visitors from near Lakeland, Florida. Scott's outstanding performance earned him the Mid-South Conference offensive player of the week award. Y-101 Story  

Scott also helped Shorter set a school record for rushing yards with 534. C.J. was told on the Monday prior to the game that he would be in the mix at fullback and he said his patience paid off, "I knew my time was going to come, I just had to be patient. I knew when it came it would be big. I was excited and at the same time I was still focused that this was the time and I had to go." 

C.J. is no stranger to multiple touchdown games. As a Bulldog he had two three-touchdown games in his junior season, both the road at Southeast Bulloch and Screven County. He had two-touchdowns games in 2008 at Bleckley and at home against Dodge County and he had one two-TD game in his senior season at Dublin when he scored on runs of 80 and 67-yards. Watching those two long runs on video is what impressed Shorter coach Phil Jones about Scott in the first place and he was quite pleased about his coming out party at Shorter, “I was proud of our young backs. C.J. had a tremendous day as a true freshman. It was just a great Hawk day and I’m thankful to the Lord to be a part of it.”   

Shorter is 5-4 with two games remaining at home against Union out of Kentucky on Saturday and then at Bethel in Tennessee the next Saturday.
