Szott's seven-year-old son Shane has cerebral palsy. He is confined to a wheelchair and communicates through a touch-screen computer. "It's a tremendous load off of my family. It allows me to continue to play and do something I love to do and feel good about what I'm doing — and I'm not putting undue pressure or strain at home."
Dave Szott gone for the year
Szott was happy to play with the Jets so he could spend more time with his son.
