The Athens Review
For Athens High School senior Anthony Sanders, the 2013-14 season will have an early honor for him heading into the basketball season.
Sanders has been named as an All-State team member by Texas Basketball Magazine.
According to a letter by Robert Springer from Texas Basketball Magazine, the honor is given to the very best players in the State of Texas.
“It shows that he worked hard,” Athens coach Gerald Anthony said. “It was like I told him if you work hard good things are going to happen and the accolades are going to come.”
Sanders was named the District 15-3A Most Valuable Player last year and was also named the team MVP for the Hornets last year.
“He is our leader and we go as he goes on the court,” Anthony said. “He keeps everything under control and he is a coach on the floor.”
Anthony said Sanders stock is going up with these latest honors.
“He is starting to draw some interest from some of the schools in the area,” Anthony said. “The interest is there but the more he works the better he will be off and the better we will be off next season.”
