Coach Corbin Quote: Anthony has been a very important part of our program the last two years. He came in as a freshman and played right away at second base, then moved to shortstop in 2011. The best word that sums him up is gamer. He loves to compete, has a great feel for the game and is fearless. He gives us great leadership on the field and will continue to be one of the better hitters in the SEC.
