Coaches' Comments: "Anthony is a very talented football player. He runs well for his size and is a very intelligent football player. He can play both inside and outside linebacker. I think he can pass rush from a two-point stance as well as anyone we've had. I expect him to have an outstanding season in 2001." - defensive coordinator/LB coach Kent Baer
