Get To Know Your Orange Man - #41 FS Eric Anthony

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The countdown continues with sophomore, Eric Anthony.

Name: Eric Anthony

Position: Free Safety

Year: Sophomore

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 198

Hometown: Baldwinsville, NY

High School: C.W. Baker

2013 Stats: Anthony made the team as a walk-on defensive back just before the season started, but did not play in any games.

2014 Projections: Maybe there's a better chance of him seeing the field now that he switched to free safety. He was listed behind Darius Kelly and Chauncey Scissum when the depth chart for spring practice came out, so you never know.

How'd He Get Here: He's a Syracuse-area native, so I'm guessing he took Route 690 East for about 20 minutes.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Nothing, unfortunately.

Money Quote: For years, Eric has been involved in a local charity that delivers Easter baskets to children who are hospitalized during the holiday. Here's what he thinks of the kids:

Some people think football players have it tough, but our workouts are nothing compared to what theses kids are going through. They're tough.

Links Of Wonder: At his suggestion, he and some teammates helped that local charity this year. Read about it.

Twitterfeed: Do you know how common the name "Eric Anthony" is? I tried, but didn't have any luck finding this one.

Tweets Of Wonder:

Don't know how, but I'm pretty sure they confused Eric with Cam Lynch. Weird.

What Does Shafer Think Of Him: Nothing in particular from what I can find, but he must have thought Eric was good enough to make the team again.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: He's majoring in finance at SU's Whitman School of Management. That's pretty cool.

Let's Get A Good Look Atcha: Check out highlights from his high school days. Look for #8.
