Scotty McCreery

2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery credits his high school teacher and baseball coach Derik Goffena for pushing him to beat the odds.

He told me, "You have to work hard. If it comes easily, it's probably something you don't want."

Behind Every Famous Person is a Fabulous Teacher.
