Noel Anthony: My favorite memory was qualifying in two state tournaments in my freshman year.
D9Sports: Why do you play high school sports?

D9Sports: Who has had the most influence on your athletic career and why?
Noel Anthony: My brothers have had a major influence on my athletic career because they have set such high standards and they have succeeded in all the sports they have played. It is hard to follow the footsteps of the Anthony twins because they have left such a big legacy, but it pushes me to work harder in my sports and to always give 110%.
D9Sports: If you could change one thing about high school sports, what would it be and why?
