Freddie Scott Bio
Freddie Scott has a history as a player in the National Football League, a pastor, executive coach, public speaker, and author. He is the founder and president of Unlock The Champion, a non-profit organization committed to leadership development and empowering people to understand and maximize their influence by "Knowing their worth, and leading with values".
Today Freddie travels throughout America speaking on such issues as leadership, healthy relationships, character development, personal growth, and parenting. The NFL Players Association acknowledged his work by awarding Freddie the 2013 Kenny Washington Award for community service, and the PTA of Tennessee also awarded Freddie a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.
To date, Freddie has been featured on CNN, HLN, and TBN, and has spoken to thousands helping to empower people to identify and cultivate their gifts. Freddie has a Master's degree in Organizational Leadership, certified in Leadership Development and Executive Coaching by the Townsend Institute. Freddie is an author, a certified Transition Coach for the NFL Player Engagement Program, and serves as a family expert for the NFL Players Association conducting workshops across the country helping player's transition from football to being better leaders, husbands and fathers. Freddie also serves as a consultant for the ACC supporting their member schools on character and life skill development. He is also nationally certified in Mental Health First Aid, and Suicide Intervention.
Freddie also has a heart for engaging the community. His most recent research has made him aware of the tremendous need, now more than ever, for strong fathers and mentors in America's ever-changing culture and across the world. As a result, Freddie founded a fatherhood and mentoring engagement program called the M46 Project. M46 Project partners with local leaders and community organizations to give men monthly tools to engage their children.
Freddie balances all these responsibilities along with those of being the husband of his beautiful wife and the proud father of four very active sons and one adorable daughter.
