Coach of the Week: Christy Winters Scott

Christy Winters Scott (ABC7)

What doesn't Christy Winters Scott do? She's a mother of three, wife, WNBA, NBA and college basketball analyst .. and on top of all that, she coaches high school basketball too.

Winters Scott is the head coach for the girl's basketball team at South Lakes High School - a position she's held for 12 years.

"If someone had asked me if I would be coaching here, I would have said 'no'," Winters Scott said. "It's just been a blessing to be around these young women."

Christy has had various stops in her coaching career- the Univesity of Maryland, Georgetown University as well as George Mason University - but South Lakes holds a special place in her heart.

"To watch them run out and warm up with the 'South Lakes' name across their chest, it just gives me a tremendous amount of pride to know that I'm still here, and I'm behind them 100 percent."
