Soccer has always been a passion and my goal has always been to play professional soccer, but first to play in college. I don’t pursue my goal just because it’s what I want to do, but I also enjoy working hard to improve myself and be the best that I can. That is why I’ve always had high goals and that’s why I work harder than most people to achieve those goals. The thing that sets me apart from the rest though isn’t just my work ethic but I am very coachable. I know that I won’t ever be able to achieve my goals by myself so I listen to others so I can learn and improve. I am also a strong student that does well with time management and I have the most interest in a business or psychology major right now.

Anthony has quick feet and shows persistent and tenacious defending. He is very good about getting forward into the attack from his wingback position and often creates chances through a crossing ball or through combination play dissecting through the middle attacking third. He has a fast pace to track back defensively and to compete with fast forwards defensively. He is still developing his upper body and core strength but he does play physically and through good positioning has a lot of success ball winning, stealing passes, or tackling the ball away. One of his strongest attributes is his decision-making with passes or dribbling after he wins a ball. He is a reliable back with technical ability and he plays smart.
