Former Football Player Austin Scott Sentenced for Dealing Marijuana

By Jenn Miller

A judge sentenced former Penn State tailback Austin Scott to up to 23 months in prison Wednesday for dealing marijuana.

Lehigh County Common Pleas Judge Robert L. Steinberg sentenced Scott for four felony offenses related to drug dealing, the Lehigh County District Attorney office confirmed Wednesday.

The district attorney’s office declined to comment further on the case as Scott could file an appeal.

Authorities say Scott, of Allentown, sold marijuana to undercover police officers on four occasions between July and this past October. The purchases occurred in Whitehall, South Whitehall and Allentown, police say.

Police say they searched the former tailback’s home and found marijuana, as well as a glass pipe with residue.

In 2007, Scott was kicked off Penn State’s football team when investigators filed rape charges against him. Authorities later dropped the charges due to a lack of evidence. Scott came to Penn State as a highly-touted recruit in 2003, finishing his career here with 1,323 rushing yards and 17 total touchdowns. He is best remembered for his strong 2006 Orange Bowl performance against Florida State, in which he picked up 110 ground yards and scored twice in the 26-23 win.
