Scott did Green Bay telecasts for 12 years, calling some of the Packers' most memorable games, including the famous Ice Bowl win over Dallas in 1967 from an open booth at Lambeau Field in subzero temperatures. He stayed with CBS for 18 years, broadcasting a variety of sports. He did the Phoenix Cardinals preseason games this year, and will do Arizona State football in the fall. He and his wife, Bonnie, live in Scottsdale, Ariz., and he does daily segments on station KTVK in Phoenix.
