Offensive lineman Ivory Scott has been named the recipient of the Arkansas State football team’s 2020 Gary Withrow Award, which is presented annually to the program’s outstanding offensive lineman of the year. The honor was created and is funded by the Old Warriors Foundation, which consists of former Arkansas State University football players.

Withrow coached A-State offensive linemen for 17 years. His pupils included former NFL players Ken Jones (Buffalo Bills) and Ray Brown (San Francisco 49ers, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions), who concluded his 20-year NFL career with Washington.

Scott has started every game of his two-year career at A-State, including eight contests at right guard and three at left guard in 2020. He helped lead the way up front last season for an A-State team that ranked second in the nation in passing offense (364.4 ypg), 14th in total offense (489.7 ypg) and 35th in scoring offense (32.9 ppg).

The 2019 All-Sun Belt Conference selection and Kenner, La., native paved the way for A-State to record at least 300 yards total offense every outing in 2020, over 400 in eight games and 500 or more in four contests, including a season-high 654 yards against Texas State.
