News media outlets across the country have reported on Steve Scott’s Oct. 18 announcement that he is currently undergoing prostate cancer treatments at Scripps Proton Therapy Center. The legendary mile distance runner and USA Track and Field Hall of Famer chose highly accurate proton therapy because of its ability to preserve healthy tissue and organs. This precision reduces the likelihood of treatment-related side effects and secondary cancers.


Scott has been able to coach cross country at California State University, San Marcos throughout his treatments, which will conclude at the end of October.
