Scot Schlein
Scot Schlein begins his second year as a volunteer coach on the Dolphins’ softball staff.

In 2012, the Dolphins reached the 30-win plateau (31) for the third straight season and earned a spot in the conference tournament for the fourth consecutive year.

Offensively, the Dolphins ranked second in the A-Sun in hitting (.278), hits (416) and third in doubles (57). The batting average and double total ranked second all-time at JU in a single season.

Prior to JU, Schlein worked in Tallahassee while he secured his degree at Florida State University. He served internships with the Seminole basketball team under Leonard Hamilton, and as an assistant to the athletic director at Tallahassee Community College. He also worked at WTXL – ABC in Tallahassee where he was the editor and floor director of the Coach Bobby Bowden call-in show.

Schlein lettered in basketball and baseball at Lincoln High School and in 2006 was named captain of the Trojans' tenth-ranked baseball team.

In three years as a pitcher and shortstop, he helped lead the team to two district championships and runner-up in the state regionals. As a senior, due to injuries to other players, Scot was asked to play virtually every position on the field and was named the Utility Player of the Year for a third straight Season. That year, Schlein batted .348, and led the Big Bend in at bats and total assists and earning All-Big Bend first team Honorable Mention. Following that season, Schlien was asked to play second base on the Florida Legends, a highly regarded travel baseball team. He also played for the Florida Titans, a travel team for high school juniors/seniors.

Schlein also distinguished himself as a Babe Ruth player, winning the Kerwin Elliot “Eagle” Award as the league’s most outstanding player, an honor previously given to former major leaguers Dean Palmer and Reggie Jefferson.

Schlein graduated cum laude from Florida State in 2011 with a degree in Sports Management.
