When asked what his most embarrassing moment is, Scotty replied, “When I was in the second grade, I got in trouble and had to eat my lunch in the teacher’s room. I fell asleep and wasn’t woken up until about 2 p.m. I then had to walk through the high school study hall in the commons to find a janitor so that I could dump my tray. All of the high school kids looked at me like I was a complete idiot.”
