VIDEO: Introducing 2012 RB Anthony Wales

Anthony Wales, a big-time 2012 running back from Louisville Central, was sensational in the season-opener against Seneca. Wales, 5'9, 170, was electrifying vs. the Redhawks, rushing for 339 yards and four scores. has video highlights of his effort.

DaMarcus Smith, a 2011 Louisville commit, was the main story heading into Friday's Seneca vs. Central showdown.

But when the game ended, it was Central junior running back Anthony Wales who had electrified the crowd - as well as frustrated Seneca's defense - all night.

Wales, a small back who is listed at 5'9, 167, possesses blazing speed. He changes directions and accelerates quicker than most.

Though Central lost to Seneca 47-32, Wales did his part to keep his team in the game, rushing for 339 yards and four touchdowns, including two scores of more than 60 yards. Wales' last touchdown of the contest was the most spectacular because the Seneca defense had him pinned in on the sideline and he completely reversed field and turned it up the opposite side to score.

Wales told last month that he'd like to stay home to play for Charlie Strong at Louisville.

"I'd love to play for my city [Louisville]," Wales said. "I like Kentucky a little bit. That's who my dad likes. I like Indiana too. That's a nice program and it's not too far from home."
