Hard-shooting All-America attackman in high school and college, All-Met scoring leader for Robinson High School, Georgetown University graduate, four-time NCAA tournament participant, North-South All-Star, goal scoring leader for US National Team, high-scorer and all-star in MLL, dedicated collegiate coach, camp instructor, clinician, and advocate of lacrosse.
Growing up in the Urick household, a familiar sports axiom often repeated was that “hard work beats talent that doesn’t work hard.” For over 17 years, Scott Urick combined hard work with talent to become one of metro DC’s all-time performers at the attack position.
Under the guidance of head coach Tom Tufts at Robinson High School in Fairfax from 1992-95, Scott developed into one of the outstanding lacrosse players in the mid-Atlantic region. A high school All-America attackman, regional all-star, and All-Met selection, he helped the Rams win two Virginia state championships.
Realizing a life-long dream to play for his father, Scott enrolled at Georgetown University, where he continued to improve his game. A fierce competitor, Scott willed himself and his teammates to achieve even more than what they might have otherwise accomplished. Scott graduated from Georgetown as the school’s all-time leading goal scorer. He was a two-time All-America selection, team MVP, and outstanding offensive player. Scott helped lead his team to four NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 1999 team, which advanced to the NCAA semi-finals. An All-Tournament team selection in 1999, he also represented Georgetown in the 2000 North/South senior all-star game, where he was named team MVP.
Following graduation, Scott’s inner fire and toughness led him to excel on ever-higher levels of competition. He competed in the Major Lacrosse League for nine years with the New Jersey Pride and Washington Bayhawks. A three-time MLL all-star selection, he was named the most valuable player of the 2002 MLL All-Star Game. Once appearing in 76-straight MLL games, Scott scored 234 goals in 102 career games. He retired in 2009 as the third all-time leading scorer in Major League Lacrosse history.
Scott also starred in international competition, as a member of United States National Team for the 2006 World Championships in Ontario, Canada. The sharpshooter led the team with 20 goals, helping the team win the silver medal.
As a coach, Scott is entering his 11th season as an assistant at Georgetown where he has coached an offense that has produced 12 players who have earned All-America honors. He brings a strong work ethic to his job and has provided faithful support to head coach Dave Urick, one of the legendary coaches in the game. During his tenure, the Hoyas have captured four ECAC titles, and have participated in the NCAA tournament six times. Three of Scott’s players have been named the outstanding offensive player in the conference.
Scott and his new bride Peggy reside in the District of Columbia.
