Irrespective of the fact that he was troubled by several injuries, first a broken ankle and then, a torn ACL, Scarbrough was able to distinguish himself as one of the finest players of the Northridge High School. Even though the broken ankle he suffered as a freshman sidelined him, the next season afforded him the chance to prove his worth, Bo blazed for his team and quickly gathered 13 touchdowns while rushing for 938 yards. There was no stopping him if not for the torn ACL he had towards the end of the season. He bounced back as a junior and was set to better his performance, but fate only allowed him to feature in seven games. Bo was again injured, this time, it was a high ankle sprain which ensured he finished the season pulling off only 792 rushing yards.
For reasons best known to Bo, he decided to move on from Northridge High, he left the school for Tuscaloosa County where he continued to play but this would only last for a while as he would equally abandon Tuscaloosa County for the IMG Academy located in Bradenton, Florida.
