Bradley David Walter "Brad" Scott (born 3 May 1976) is an
Australian rules footballer in the Australian Football League.
identical twinbrother of Chris Scott, Brad was recruited to Hawthorn in the 1994 AFL Draftat pick 60. Without playing a game, he was delisted and then re-drafted in the 1996 Draft, where he made his debut in 1997. Playing all 22 games he was seen as a very solid contributor, but was traded at the end of that season to the Brisbane Lions, enabling him to play in the same side as his brother.
Scott battled numerous injuries after arriving at the Lions, and ironically, on achieving the milestone of his 150th game late in 2005, he suffered another injury.
Like his brother, Scott is renowned as one of the hardest players in the league. They were both integral members of the Lions' first two premierships in 2001 and 2002.
Scott's lacklustre form in 2004 and 2005 fed speculation that his contract with the Lions would not be renewed, however he remained with the club and announced on August 10, 2006 that he would retire at the end of the season. Scott played his farewell game played in Round 22 against the Saints.
Retirement from playing saw Scott take up his current appointment as Development Coach at Collingwood, where he has already had success, working closely with a number of young Magpies and other players.
