Dorian Scott, two-time Jamaican Olympian shot-putter, has been named the South Region’s Women’s Assistant Coach of the Year after having an outstanding season. Scott of Florida State University (FSU) continued his exceptional efforts at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Oregon, where he had six athletes in competition, all of whom have been influential in the success of the Seminoles team. Three Scott athletes – discus athlete Kellion Knibb, hammer thrower Veronika Kanuchova, and shot-putter Gieneve Grange – established records for FSU. Shot-putter Austin Droogsma and discus competitor Emmanuel Onyia also performed well for the FSU team this season, and both achieved third place finishes in their events. Scott was born in New Jersey. His parents are from Jamaica, and he represented the country at the Olympics in 2008 and 2012. He won gold in the shot put at the 2005 and 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games as well.
