BUFFALO, NY - Former Buffalo standout and current Oakland Raider defensive end Trevor Scott was named the Raiders' winner of the Ed Block Courage award, given annually to someone on each of the NFL's 32 teams to someone who has overcome adversity.
Scott rebounded from a serious knee injury to return to the Raiders this season and make seven tackles in a back-up role. After being tied for the team lead in sacks each of his first two seasons in the league, Scott earned a reputation as a special teams standout as well before a knee injury ended his 2010 season in week 10. He worked hard to rehab the injury and was able to play in all 16 games for the Silver and Black in 2011.
The Ed Block Courage Award Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of neglected children and ending the cycle of abuse. The purpose is to raise Awareness and Prevention of child abuse. That objective is coupled with the Foundation's commitment to celebrating players of inspiration in the NFL.
