Todd Scott played eight seasons in the NFL for four different teams (i.e., Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Bucaneers, New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs). Scott, an all pro safety, traces his NFL success back to his home town. The Galveston, Texas native played little league and high school ball with a plethora of pros include: Eric Hill (Arizona Cardinals), Patrick Bates (Oakland Raiders), Kimble Anders (Kansas City Chiefs), Anthony Phillips (Atlanta Falcons), Terry Irving (Arizona Cardinals), Patrice Alexander (Washington Redskins), Tim Denton (Atlanta Falcons) and George McCullough (Tennessee Titans). He also had an all pro dad, Charles Scott, who taught him the value of education, hard work and mentorship.
The mentorship provided by former NFL coaches Dennie Green, Tony Dungy, Herm Edwards and Lovie Smith taught Scott the value of giving back and applying the African proverb “each one teach one.” In addition to the coaching Scott received as a football player, he credits Pastor Kirby John Caldwell for his greatest transformation. Scott has been of loyal and faithful member of Windsor Village United Methodist Church, which lead to his vision to expand his small residential real estate business.
Scott credits his tenure as a Player Development Director for the Houston Texans and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for his success in real estate. His model of buying single family homes and small apartment complexes has turned in to a viable small business. Simply put, Scott makes money while he sleeps with passive income from his residential real estate enterprise. Scott has plans on expanding Great Scott Enterprises by teaching former, active and recent athletes how to leverage their net worth for life-long financial security.
