DURHAM, N.C. – Durham native and senior running back Desmond Scott is featured in today’s edition of Summer Spotlight.

Scott, one of 39 players in Duke football history to amass over 1,000 career rushing yards, enters the 2012 season ranking among the ACC’s active leaders in all-purpose yardage (5th), rushing yardage (6th) and pass receptions (8th).  He has caught at least one pass in 26 consecutive games – the fifth-longest active streak in the nation.

In addition, Scott is one of two active players in the ACC with 1,000-plus rushing yards, 500-plus receiving yards and 1,000plus kickoff return yards, joining Orwin Smith of Georgia Tech.  Scott also joins Chris Douglas as the only players in Duke history with 1,000-plus rushing yards, 500-plus receiving yards and 1,000-plus kickoff return yards.

Last season, Scott played in nine games and rushed 72 times for 367 yards and two touchdowns while catching 25 passes for 135 yards.

The Blue Devils open the 2012 season with a home contest against FIU on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 7 p.m.  Duke season tickets are available online at www.GoDuke.com/tickets or by calling the Duke Athletic Ticket Office at 919-681-BLUE.
