We have another Alumni Profile for you today as Morgan Scott is the subject of our conversation.

What factors helped you choose Widener University? I chose Widener because they have a great physical therapy program and I knew I wanted to play lacrosse.

Major: Psychology – pre Physical Therapy

What is your most memorable moment from CHS athletic career? We tied Seneca in a scrimmage and I’m pretty sure Sam Herron and I cried because we were so happy…

Favorite Movie: Finding Nemo or Monsters Inc.

Favorite song: Drops of Jupiter by Train

Favorite class in college: Personality Psychology

Favorite post game snack or meal: If we play well, our coach gets us Wendy’s, and that’s pretty much like Christmas for us.

Favorite class at CHS: That’s tough. Mr. Campbell’s psychology class because I think I was ‘that guy’ that laughed at everything that man said.

Who got you interested in playing lacrosse? Ms. Lesniak (Mrs. Skviar) in 7th grade because they didn’t have enough girls for the team.

What is your favorite part of the sport? My team, 100 percent.

What advice would you give seniors who want to continue their athletic careers in college? Make the most of it because you only have 4 years there.

What part of your game improved the most since playing in college? My game awareness. It’s more of a mental game in college.

Was it difficult to adjust to the college game? Yes, it’s a much faster pace, but that’s why you have teammates to help you out.

Is there anything from your CHS athletic career that helped you prepare for college athletics? The experience – learning what it is like to be part of a team and how to help others both on and off the field. Laura Rickus (Mrs. Curran) was an amazing coach and made my senior year unforgettable.
