Scott Wilsonwas born on August 6, 1950 in San Diego, California. He took up weight training in his garage at a young age, with any weights he could get his hands on. At one point, his mother won bicycles for Scott and his siblings on a game show, and Scott sold his to buy more weights. As a teen, Scott played football and wrestled in highschool, and still holds the school record for "fastest pin" (11 seconds). Following school, Scott joined the Marines.
In the early 1970's he entered the Mr. San Diego contest on a dare, won the contest, and never looked back.
|Within 2 years, he was Mr. America. He went on to win 1981 Mr. International, and the 1983 Portland Grand Prix. Scott's combination of size and symmetry made him one of the top competitors in the world from the late 70's to mid 80's. His shoulders and triceps were considered the best in the business. |
Today, Scott lives in northern California with his wife Vy and has 3 sons (Scott, Michael, and Erik). Contests include the 1983 Pro World 5th; 1983 Grand Prix Portland 1st; 1983 Grand Prix Colorado 6th; 1994 Masters Olympia 11th; 1999 Masters Olympia 10th; 2000 Masters Olympia 8th.
