At Capuchino High School, he flourished. He became an integral part of what would become known as the school's "golden era" of athletics. Scattini was a standout football and baseball player. He took his skills on the gridiron to the College of San Mateo and then to UC- Berkeley where he was a major contributor. Later, he was head football coach at the University of Nevada- Reno for seven years."
