Personal life

Scott Self who started playing lacrosse when he was seven first picked up the sport when he watched his younger brother, Brad play it. Self growing up was very competitive in both hockey and lacrosse in his childhood. In 1999, Scott Self was drafted by the Buffalo Bandits while he was playing college-level hockey at the University of Guelph.[1]

International

Scott Self plays for team Canada. He won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2007 ILF World Indoor Lacrosse Championship when they beat Iroquois Nationals 15-14 in overtime.[2]

Professional career

In 1999 Scott Self was drafted by the Buffalo Bandits 28th overall in the fourth round but didn't make an appearance until the 2001 NLL season where he made only one appearance. After his rookie season Scott Self was signed by the New York Saints where he appeared in fifteenth games recording eleven points. After the 2002 NLL season Self was included in a trade between the Saints and his new NLL team, the Ottawa Rebel.[3] In his first and only season with the Rebel, Self appeared in sixteen games and became a key player to the struggling franchise. After his third season in the NLL, the Ottawa Rebel folded and Scott Self was released into the NLL dispersal draft where he was drafted third overall by the Arizona Sting.[4] After his rookie campaign with the Bandits, Saints and Rebel, his real journey began in the desert with the Arizona Sting. With the Sting, Self went to two NLL Championship games and collected 69 points, 312 loose balls and 64 penalty minutes in 61 games. He also made two appearances to the NLL All-star game as a reserve for the west team during his four-year stretch with the Sting. Despite the Sting's success the franchise suspended operation in 2007 due to a lack in funds. Because of this Self would once again have to enter the NLL dispersal draft. This time around he was drafted fourth overall in the first round by the Chicago Shamrox. Self would have a successful season with the Shamrox gathering 15 points, 13 penalty minutes, and 100 loose balls and an appearance to the NLL all-star game. But for the third time in his career he would have to enter the NLL dispersal draft due to his team folding where he would go second overall drafted by the Edmonton Rush. After Self's season with the Rush he was acquired by the Minnesota Swarm in a trade on July 7, 2009 between the Rush and Swarm. After his season with the Swarm he was traded to the Buffalo Bandits where he would spend his next two and a half seasons with. In his three years with the Bandits he gathered 33 points, 48 penalty minutes, 187 loose balls and an appearance in the 2012 NLL all-star game where he replaced Toronto's Colin Doyle who was unable to play due to an injury. In his third season with the Bandits before the trade deadline Scott Self was traded to the Rochester Knighthawks for Alexander-Kedoh Hill.[5] In his three years with the Knighthawks he's played 45 games and recorded 15 points, 15 penalty minutes and 181 loose balls. He's also appeared in two championship games winning it once and still competing in the other one.
