Now, we invite you to join us for an “Up-Close and Personal” interview with this young man as he shares his success story of playing in the NFL, as well as the timely progressions he made from flag football, to Pop Warner, to High School, then College, and ultimately to the League. He now belongs to that most elite group of athletes in the country who have achieved their childhood dreams of making a career in professional sports. Now, at the young age of 24, he is a second-year rostered NFL player.
In our interview, Anthony talks about his past, his present, and gives a brief glimpse of his future. We’ll touch on his early Pop Warner playing days with the El Sereno Stallions, his high school career at Woodrow Wilson-Los Angeles City Schools, his junior college experience at East L.A. College, his NCAA D-1 play at the PAC-12’s University of Utah, and ultimately, his signing with the Texans after the 2014 NFL combine. As you will learn in our interview, Anthony’s journey to the NFL can be positively characterized with an affirmation similar to this: “Surround yourself with good, loving people. Listen closely and attentively to their advice. And always believe in your dreams!” Rico Cabrera, Sr./Editor, EastLASportsScene.Com
