Scott Davis (born January 29, 1972 in Great Falls, Montana) is an American figure skater. He is the 1993 & 1994 U.S. national champion. In 1994, he defeated 1988 Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano to win the title. Davis represented the United States at the 1994 Winter Olympics, where he placed 8th.
In the years following, Davis suffered from vertigo and had problems with his jump consistency. Although he continued to compete until the 1998 season, after 1995 he never again qualified for a World or Olympic team. After turning professional, he appeared in an ice show production of the musical Grease.
Known for his spinning ability, Davis was coached by Kathy Casey in Colorado Springs and Galina Zmievskaya in Simsbury, Connecticut. He coaches in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where his students include Vaughn Chipeur.
Davis is married to Stephanie LaRiviere, with whom he has a daughter, Maggie.
