After a terrific junior season in which Deon Anthony accounted for 2,080 yards of total offense (872 rushing & 1,208 passing) and was named LSWA Class 5A All-State, some of the top programs in the region have contacted the local blue-chipper. Despite the attention from major football programs, the Ragin'Cajuns have not backed off from Anthony.
"I received calls from LSU, UL, Oklahoma and Grambling recently, Anthony said." "I attended the LSU game last season against South Carolina and you are allowed to invite several guests. I've spoken to Coach Bustle from UL and he wanted to come in for the summer camp, but I couldn't get there. Oklahoma and Grambling continue to call me as well; those are the programs recruiting me the hardest at this point."
At what positions are these programs recruiting the 6-0, 185-pound athlete?
"LSU and Oklahoma want me to play CB on the defensive side of the ball. UL has spoken to me about playing offense at the receiver position and that would be fine with me too. I really don't care which side of the ball I play on, as long as I have the opportunity to play college football."
Anthony played on a very talented Westgate team last season, how does the 2008 edition of the Tigers look?
"We are really young on the offensive line, so it might take some time for them to jell. But we do have some guys at the skilled positions that can make things happen. I believe our defense is going to be pretty strong this season, with guys like Seth Stansbury and David Youman. We have a chance to be good this season and compete for the district title.
