Stepping Stones: Anthony Owosu

After being one of the pleasant surprises in the DFW area in 2006, the Bell Blue Raiders have high hopes for 2007. One of those players with high hopes is 5'11 180 pound WR Anthony Owosu.

Owosu who was a role player for Bell who finished 6-5 before exiting in the bi-district round of the Class 5A playoffs, boasts 4.5 speed in the forty and a 30 inch vertical leap along with a 500 pound squat max.

In 2006, Anthony totaled over 400 yards of total offense and 2 touchdowns. His versatility makes him a dangerous weapon in Coach Olivo's offense as Anthony has the ability to line up in the slot or in the backfield. Besides starring on the gridiron, Anthony is a valuable member of the BHS track team.

"My vision, versatility, and my quickness off the line are my biggest strengths," said the Bell WR who mentioned he's worked on his hands and route running extensively this off-season to improve his overall game.

Owosu currently holds one offer from New Mexico and he's gotten major interest from Utah, Kansas, TCU and SMU. Last summer Anthony kept busy participating In 7 on 7 for Bell, and he competed once again this summer for BHS. Anthony will also be participating in a camp at SMU next weekend as well.

Anthony says academics and program prestige will play major factors in deciding where he lands. "I'd like to make a decision as soon as possible, but I wouldn't be too upset if I had to wait until after the season," said Owosu.

As for 2007 Anthony has high hopes after Bell made the playoffs in 2006, "I'd like to help the team win a district title and possibly make a long playoff run," said Owosu.
