Scott Van Pelt was born on August 4th, 1966 in Brookeville, Maryland. Van Pelt spent a lot of his childhood in and around the Washington D.C. area. Scott always had a love for sports growing up. Van Pelt imagined himself having a career in the sports industry at a young age and began preparing. After he graduated from Sherwood High School in Sandy Spring, Maryland, Van Pelt went on to the University of Maryland in 1988. Scott discovered his love for radio, television, and film.

In 1990, Scott went to work for the Golf Channel. This is where he worked from 1995 to 2000. His position was as a studio host for some of the Golf Channel’s signature programs. In 2001 he left the channel to head to ESPN and live out his childhood dream. This is where Scott found his place in SportsCenter.
