Scott Eddy is in his third season with St. Bonaventure Athletics Communications in 2017-18. After serving two years as Assistant Sports Information Director, he was named Director of Athletics Communications in 2017.

He has received multiple honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). In May 2016, he was honored with the 2015-16 Fred Stabley, Sr. National Story of the Year Award for his profile on Bona softball player Katie Sinclair's donation of bone marrow to a complete stranger. A year earlier, he received top student-athlete profile honors in District 2 (Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, West Virginia, District of Columbia) for his feature story on Eric Schwartz, a member of the Bloomsburg football team. In 2017, he was honored for producing the top blog in District 1 (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec) for his work chronicling the St. Bonaventure women's basketball team's run in the NCAA Tournament.

During the 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament, he served as a media relations assistant at the first and second round games in Buffalo, handling game notes for the site. 

Eddy joined SBU in September 2015 after spending the previous two years as the Assistant Sports Information Direcor at Bloomsburg (Pa.) University. As the primary contact for the Huskies football program, Eddy helped spearhead the promotion of running back Franklyn Quiteh who won the Harlon Hill Award representative of the top player in Division II. The Huskies captured 19 All-America awards in 2013, most in school history, and also had finalists for nearly every major award in Division II including the Gene Upshaw Award (top lineman), Cliff Harris Award (top small-school defensive player) and Fred Mitchell Award (top place-kicker). While overseeing baseball, Eddy helped promote the first Daktronics All-Atlantic Region First Team selection in program history. Bloomsburg's women's basketball program also had Catherine Noack become the first multiple All-America honoree in recent memory while the women's soccer program scored two All-Region recepients. 

Prior to Bloomsburg, Eddy spent the previous two years as a graduate assistant in the Sports Information office at fellow PSAC institution Edinboro University. At Edinboro, he was the primary contact for the Fighting Scots' nationally-ranked women's basketball squads during the team's back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances including a run to the Sweet 16 and Atlantic Regional hosting duties in 2012. He also served as the women's soccer contact as the Fighting Scots made their second-ever appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2012. He handled the coverage of the Edinboro softball and volleyball teams as well while assisting in the compilation of stats at all home sporting events. While at Edinboro he led the re-design and launch of a new university athletics website in the summer of 2012.

Before getting his start in the collegiate sports information field, he served two and a half years as the sports editor for the Chautauqua Star newspaper in Western New York. Prior to his time in sports journalism, he spent two seasons in the front office of the Jamestown Jammers, the New York-Penn League affiliate of the Miami Marlins, working in media relations before transitioning to the role of Director of Baseball Operations when the Jammers reached the NYPL Championship Series in 2008. He also worked as the team's play-by-play announcer from 2009-2012 and has been on the radio call for various high school sports including the Babe Ruth World Series on three occasions.

A 2008 graduate of St. Bonaventure University with a bachelor's degree in Journalism and Mass Communication, Eddy earned his Master's Degree in Communication Studies at Edinboro in May 2013. 

Eddy is a member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). A native of Ashville, N.Y., he currently resides in Allegany.
