Stepping Stones: Anthony Bibbs

Jersey Village RB Anthony Bibbs has emerged as one of the top running backs in the Greater Houston area from the Class of 2008.

The 5'10 194 pound tailback with 4.4 speed put up some solid numbers as a junior rushing for 1124 yards and 8 touchdowns along with chipping in over 200 yards receiving earning first team all 17-5A honors and helping lead the Falcons to a playoff appearance.

As a sophomore Anthony was also impressive as he earned second team all-district honors, Anthony besides the blazing speed possesses a 270 pound bench press max, a 420 pound squat max and a 35 inch vertical leap.

Besides starring on the gridiron, Anthony is also a key contributor to the JVHS track team as he runs the 4x100 and 4x200 relays along with the open 200. "My agility and quick feet are my two top assets in my opinion, this off-season I really want to improve on my strength," commented the tailback from suburban Houston.

Bibbs does boast an offer from Nebraska along with Kansas State and Oklahoma State, along with interest from Missouri and Texas A&M. "Oklahoma State is my favorite right now, they have shown a lot of interest and one my friends goes there and he really likes it," said Bibbs.

Last summer Anthony didn't make the camp rounds but he did play seven on seven for the Falcons, this summer besides seven on seven look for Bibbs in mini-camps at Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.

Bibbs who says he'd like to major in Communications, says academics, along with the chance to earn some early playing time will play key roles in deciding where he winds up. "I think my decision won't be made until after my senior year, but if the right offer and school comes along I may decide early." Anthony is one of many players to keep an eye on as the summer progresses in the recruiting hotbed of Greater Houston.
