Profile of an Olympian!

Tiffany Ramzy

Scott Eskridge is a man on a mission. You might come to that conclusion after hearing the number of Olympic events Scott will be competing in during this year’s Robson Olympics—a record nine events! When asked to remark about his enthusiasm for the games, Scott insisted he just wants to have fun, and he added, “I hope I didn’t bite off more than I can chew.” Scott, a 6-foot, 5-inch tall former UNT college basketball player with an athletic build, is sure to be up for the challenge, and odds are he should walk away with at least one first-place finish. No pressure, right?

Here are some excerpts from his interview:
