Vinnie Scott

Class of


Vinnie Scott was the second college football player in America to kick three field goals in a single game when he split the uprights from 38, 41 and 48 yards for the University of Maryland
Terrapins in 1959. This was an Atlantic Coast Conference record that stood until 1979. Scott’s talented toe and aggressive play as a defensive halfback earned him a spot with the Baltimore Colts in
1961. However, the Colts traded him to the Washington Redskins and Vinnie accepted an offer to join the faculty and coaching staff at Salesianum School. It was the start of a Delaware scholastic
coaching career that spanned 45 years. Vinnie was head basketball coach at Salesianum from 1964-1967; Conrad High School from 1969-1972; Glasgow High School from 1973-1979; and McKean High School
from 1979-1980. He was head football coach at Delcastle High School from 1982 -1989 and St. Mark’s High School from 1991-2004. He led the Spartans to the Division I state finals in 1999, 2002 and
2003. Vinnie also served as an assistant coach in football and basketball at Salesianum, Conrad, Glasgow, Delcastle and St. Mark’s. He was head coach of the Salesianum swim team from 1961-1963, and
head baseball coach there in 1967 after assisting from 1962-1966. Vinnie was named basketball Coach of the Year in 1972, and Blue Hen Football Conference Coach of the Year in 1987. Scott compiled a
record of 83-49-2 in 13 years at St. Mark’s, where he was the longest serving head coach.
