It is easy to say that most college coaches like a kid with a great work ethic. Syracuse and coach Scott Shafer are no exception as they found a kid who really fit the mold in DT Anthony Giudice, who committed to the Orange back in June. Guidice's story is one that will make him a true leader as he advances through his Syracuse career.

Guidice is another kid that will be well-liked by Orange fans, as he's a hardnosed, work your ass off kind of player. He built his body up from a skinny, 145 pound freshman into a beast at defensive tackle. With that type of work ethic, how can you fail? Anthony will benefit greatly from a college S&C program, and it will be very interesting to see how the staff plans to use him moving forward.
I fully expect a redshirt year for Guidice, but based on his work ethic, I think it would be irresponsible to count him out to challenge for a special teams spot or even jump into the DT rotation in 2015.
