Scott Burrows was a star athlete and fierce competitor. By the age of 19, he played college football at Florida State University as a walk-on wide receiver and was a top-ranked kick-boxing Black Belt champion whose last fight was broadcast by ESPN.

During the height of his collegiate career, his life changed dramatically. On November 3rd, 1984, he survived a terrible automobile accident as a passenger in his friend’s car, suffering a critical and life-threatening spinal cord neck injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down and diagnosed a quadriplegic. To achieve extraordinary results from that point forward in both his personal and professional life, Scott learned how to harness a clear VISION, an unstoppable MINDSET and tremendous GRIT.
