Stuart Scott (born July 19, 1965 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American sportscaster for ESPN, most visibly as an anchor on SportsCenter. Scott graduated in 1987 with a bachelor of arts in speech communications from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Scott is famous for his amblyopia and on-air "catch phrases", including:

  • "Boo-yah!"
  • "Mojo!"
  • "Hater in the House!" (usually after an american football interception or other great defensive play.)
  • "Playa please!"
  • "Holla at a playa when ya' see him on the street." (home run or a nice play)
  • "Can I get a witness from the congregation?"
  • "As cool as the other side of the pillow."
  • "Call him butter, 'cause he was on a roll."
  • "Call him Bus (reference to J. Bettis) 'cause he took them to school"
  • "And the Lord said, 'You got to rise up!'" (à la a Southern Baptist preacher, "Lord" pronounced with an extra-long open-mid back rounded vowel and with an alveolar flap instead of an alveolar approximant)
  • "I ain't gonna be sayin' nothin', but that ain't right!"
  • "...Tar Heel." (reference to anybody who played at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Scott's alma mater)
  • "[He] takes/brings it to the house." (when an American football ballcarrier scores a rushing touchdown)

Stuart Scott was injured on April 3, 2002, at the New York Jets training camp while reporting for ESPN when a machine that throws footballs for receivers to practice on hit him in the left eye with a football, requiring Scott to undergo surgery of the cornea .
