Meet Savanna Scott, Future Woman in Sports
I had the most amazing opportunity to attend the 2022 NFL Draft at the end of April on behalf of Women of Fantasy Football. I can’t thank the team enough for allowing me to represent them at this special event. It was quite overwhelming, and I didn’t quite do what I had hoped to do while I was there. But I still did a lot! One of my favorite moments was meeting a young girl who was sitting behind me. Savanna Scott, a future woman in sports, was there to announce the Panthers’ 3rd Round Pick.
Savanna told me the story of how she’s the President of her local elementary school. Part of her campaign platform was to bring strawberry-flavored milk as a lunch option to her school. Her campaign gained enough attention that the folks at Fuel Up to Play 60 took notice. They invited Savanna to be their guest at the NFL Draft, and the rest is history!
It was my first time being in an actual press room, shouting out my questions to the newly minted rookie draft picks. I felt nervous, so it was quite amazing to hear Savanna jump in and confidently ask her questions. Especially in a room full of professional journalists. You can imagine that she received quite a bit of attention, which also allowed for many adorable soundbites and photos. She had the opportunity to meet some of the players and seemed to have developed a bond with the Panthers’ 1st Round Pick, OT Ickey Ekwonu.
