Nothing is known about Scott's life before or after the outbreak started. It is possible he lived in or near Alexandria before the apocalypse.
At some point during the outbreak Scott made his way toward the Alexandria Safe-Zone where he settled into the community. Upon being interviewed, Scott was assigned as a supply runner where he met and befriended Heath and Annie where the three became a prominent supply team.
After Heath's team returns to Alexandria, and Heath persuades newcomer Eugene Porter to open the gate and let them in, Heath introduces Eugene to his team, including Scott. He later helps the other Alexandrians construct a wall to deter the zombie horde being led along the route. With the horde on the move, he goes with Annie, Barnes, Sturgess, Glenn Rhee, Nicholas, and Heath to keep zombies from straggling off the road.
Scott is seen with Rick's group to deal with the broken off quarry herd from the loud horn blaring from Alexandria. When Rick splits off with the group to get to the RV at the diversion point, the remaining members head back towards Alexandria but are ambushed by walkers. Scott and David fight off the walkers, and while doing so a panicked Sturgess accidentally shoots Scott in the leg. Scott is almost killed by the walkers until he is saved by the others.
The remaining group heads towards a nearby town and take refuge in an abandoned pet store. Scott is tended by Heath and when the group hears gunshots from Alexandria, note that walkers in the town are going to Alexandria as a result. Scott and Annie pressure Heath and Michonne to leave them behind as they would slow them down, but they refuse and take the two with them. Scott watches Annie get devoured by walkers first and later David when they get climb over a fence. He is later seen being helped by Heath and Michonne across a stream and the three make their way back to Alexandria.
Scott is recovering at the clinic as doctor Denise Cloyd figures out how to save his life. She is overwhelmed and declares that Scott is going to die. However, Tara is able to calm her down and encourage to go over the medical books once more to find a way to treat Scott. Denise is successful and is able to stabilize Scott and allow him to continue recovering.
Scott remains hospitalized at the clinic as Denise continues to care for him.
When Denise arrives at the infirmary, she asks about the condition of her patients, and Heath tells her that they took them upstairs, Scott included.
Scott is present at the meeting in the church, listening to Rick's speech about the danger of the Saviors. When Rick asked if anyone objected to the idea of attacking the Saviors, Scott remained silent.
