What does it take to be a student-athlete? That is the one question many students around the U.S. have to figure out for themselves. Nowadays you don’t only have to be good at the sport you play, but you have to be excel in school also.

When Anthony isn’t playing for North Eugene High School’s team he’s playing club basketball. So far, he’s won 5 club basketball championships. Anthony plans to stay and finish out his high school career at North Eugene.
Anthony plans to play basketball in college, and hopefully compete in the NBA after college, “I plan to make it in the NBA to take care of my mom and family, so they have no worries.” If Anthony could pick any college he could go to and play basketball he said it would be, “Arizona State.” Anthony has Dublin City University looking to scout him in 2021.
