TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- Sequoyah High School senior and football quarterback Brayden Scott has been nominated for the national Mr. Football competition presented by VYPE magazine and State Farm.

Scott has attended Sequoyah Schools since the eighth grade and is expected to sign an official letter of intent in February to play football at the University of Memphis.

While at Sequoyah, Scott was the starting quarterback on Team USA, and he holds Sequoyah Schools' records for the most passing yards, 6,497, and 99 total touchdowns. As of press time, he had four games left in the regular season.

One hundred players have been nominated for this honor. In October, that list was expected to be narrowed to 50 players with the top 20 getting an automatic advance to the semi-finals. Finalists will be selected in November.
