Bo Scott (born March 30, 1943 in Connellsville, Pennsylvania) is a former running back for the Cleveland Browns in the National Football League.
Scott played at Ohio State University and was selected by the Browns in the third round of the 1965 NFL Draft. Because the Browns' backfield was already full of quality backs - future Hall of Fame rushers Jim Brown and Leroy Kelly, as well as Ernie Green, were on the team at the time - Scott elected to sign for the Ottawa Rough Riders of the Canadian Football League. In Canada, he was named a CFL all-star and helped the team to the 1968 Grey Cup championship. After joining the Browns in 1969, Scott rushed for 2,124 yards and 18 touchdowns in 554 attempts in his Cleveland career. Scott was the starting fullback for the Browns from 1970-1972. After his playing time diminished in 1973 and 1974, Scott was waived by Cleveland on August 8, 1975.
