2019 Safe Sports Social Star of the Year Winner

Scott Evans

Scott Evans, a physician's assistant, is a fixture on sports sidelines throughout the community at the high school, collegiate and professional levels. In addition to his role with several high schools in southern NH, he is part of the sports medicine teams at the Manchester Monarchs, Saint Anselm College and Southern New Hampshire University.

Scott brings his professional and collegiate knowledge and experience to good use for Safe Sports kids by taking care of them both directly and by helping their athletic trainers deliver top-notch care.

Scott and his wife Randy have seven children who have all participated in sports - with Scott on their sidelines as a parent coach. Scott attended Springfield College then completed his physician assistant studies at Daemen College in Amherst, NY and the University of Nebraska in Omaha.

Scott's commitment to youth sports safety is extraordinary and he is most deserving of this recognition.
