NOTEBOOK : Scotti Headed for Southern Methodist

January 23, 1994|CHARLES SMITH | SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

Loyola High punter Anthony Scotti made an unwritten commitment to play football at Southern Methodist University next fall.

"SMU was after (running back) Kadar Hamilton and I told them about Scotti," Loyola Coach Steve Grady said. "SMU needed a punter and they liked Scotti."

Scotti punted 35 times for a 40.1-yard average. His longest was 59 yards.

Scotti would be the third consecutive punter from Loyola to attend a Division I school.

The 6-2, 180-pound senior succeeds brothers Paul Stonehouse, who graduated from Stanford in 1993, and John Stonehouse, the starting punter for USC.
