On January 27, 2013, The Central New York Chapter of The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame honored Eric Anthony
, a senior at Baker High School, along with over 60 Section III high school football players at the 13th Annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Dinner held at the Turning Stone Casino & Resort. The Scholar-Athlete Award recognizes athletes for their academic achievements. Anthony will receive a $500 scholarship from the foundation.
This past fall Anthony was also the recipient of the Joe Witowski Student-Athlete Award from the Syracuse chapter of the New York State Certified Football Officials (NYSCFO). The annual award was established to recognize the highest academically ranked senior football player from among the schools that the Syracuse chapter services. The award was established in 1993 in memory of Witowski, a long-time official who was very active in the NYSCFO.
Anthony plans to attend Syracuse University in the fall to study finance and sports management.
