About Scott Zolak in brief
Scott David Zolak is an American broadcaster and former professional football player. He played quarterback in the National Football League for nine seasons, primarily with the New England Patriots. He is a graduate of Ringgold High School and the University of Maryland. After his retirement, he became a sportscaster and football analyst in the New York and New England area. He was named the Atlantic Coast Offensive Player of the Week four times in his career. He also played on the basketball team as a forward, and was a four-time letterman in that sport as well. He currently works as a football analyst for WQED in New York City and WTAE in Philadelphia. He has also worked as a coach for the New Jersey Nets and New York Jets. He won the Super Bowl with the Dolphins in 1999, playing in one game for Miami before retiring. His father, Paul, worked as head coach and athletic director for Ringgold and gave his son a football for good luck before every game. His size and arm were noted in the 1991 NFL Draft, though there were concerns about his accuracy and he was not drafted because of these concerns. The Patriots selected him with the 84th pick of the fourth round of the 1991 draft. He completed 124 of 248 passes for 1,314 yards, threw eight touchdowns and seven interceptions, and finished his career with a passer rating of 64. 8. At his graduation, he ranked fifth in school history with 270 pass completions, seventh with 3,589 passing yards, and second with 2,589 yards and 2 touchdowns in a career.
His final appearance was his final appearance in a final appearance, in his final season of college football, when he played for the Maryland Terrapins. In his first start as a senior, he completed a school record 28 passes in 46 attempts for 303 yards and two touchdowns, including a 51-yard pass to Gene Thomas with 61 seconds left that gave Maryland the win against Virginia Tech, 20–13. He threw a 59-yard touchdown pass with 2: 27 left to beat 25th ranked West Virginia, 14–10, in the 1990 Independence Bowl. He had thrown 225 completed passes in 418 attempts for 2,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in his high school career, and had thrown eight touchdown passes in his college career as a junior and senior. His first collegiate appearance came against West Virginia. He sat out his freshman year, and became the third-string quarterback behind Dan Henning and Neil O’Donnell after two quarterbacks transferred. He appeared in four games for Maryland that season. In 1989, he played in eight games, completing 33 of 69 passes for 407 yards. In 1990, he was the starter for Maryland, and head coach Joe Krivak had high hopes for him heading into the season. However, in an October game against Georgia Tech, he had been sacked 23 times and had a pass intercepted 12 times. By the end of the season, as Maryland was preparing to face Louisiana Tech in the1990 Independence Bowl, he threw 225 completed throws in 418 Attempts and teams tied, 34–34, in Zolk’s final appearance.
