Drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 5th round of the 1979 NFL Draft, Scott Fitzkee never found a role with the Eagles despite playing in 15 of the team's games in his rookie year.  After the 1980 season he went cross-country to San Diego, playing 14 games in two years for the Chargers but again, not finding a real role to play in the team's high-flying "Air Coryell" offense.

Jim Mora and the Philadelphia/Baltimore Stars, however, proved to be a very good fit for Fitzkee indeed as the former Penn State Nittany Lion lead the Stars in receptions in two of the team's three years, catching 183 receptions and 15 touchdowns.  As quarterback and fellow PSU alum Chuck Fusina's favorite target, he complemented an offense that was viewed as run-oriented thanks to Kelvin Bryant, adding 2,508 yards to the team's potent offensive attack.

Fitzkee left football when the Stars and the USFL ceased operations, and today he operates a roofing business in Hunt Valley, Maryland.
