His name popped up and I felt he would be a good fit" mentioned Coach Murton.
Anthony is currently 15th All-Time in goals scored and 8th All-Time in assists at Teays Valley. Anthony was awarded 2nd Team Mid-State League for both his Junior and Senior years for which Coach Murton looks forward to seeing what Anthony can do at the next level.

I am excited to see him here and look forward to working with him."
Anthony is the 3rd signing by OCU Men's Soccer along with Josh Hayes (GK) and Blake Steinbrink (D) this year. "We also have some verbal commitments and we will let you know when they sign" mentioned Coach Murton but added, "and we plan to have those 4 signed here soon." When asked how many are in the works, Murton mentioned, "enough to make us competitive in each position, day in and day out."
