Former Atheletes of the Week, Now NFL Players of the Week


By Kris Rusho

Both Trevor Scott, of Potsdam, and Brian Leonard, of Gouverneur, are former atheletes of the week and now stand outs in the National Football League.

Scott is heading into his third season with the Oakland Raiders and knows what it takes to make it in the NFL, but surprisingly he was Mel's Athlete of the Week not for football....but for basketball.

Scott lead Potsdam to the final four in basketball and remembers talking to Mel in Gouverneur like it was yesterday.

Leonard is starting his fourth season in the NFL, his second with the Cincinatti Bengals.

Even as a high school player, Leonard recognized the need for excellent skills and reliable teammates to succeed on the field.
