I just heard about this amazing young man in Peter King's column in "Football Morning in America" on NBC Sports website. He is a tremendous inspiration to everyone and I believe his incredible spirit will continue to inspire all those who were fortunate enough to meet him. His brief life on earth has changed all those who knew him, forever. Godspeed Anthony! You were a shooting star here to remind us what a treasure this life is. Thank You!

I never heard of you until last night, when my 15 year old son from Conrad Weiser mentioned you. So I sat down and read all I could. Your were an amazing, outstanding young man. Your loss has affected so many people, not just your family and classmates and your sports family, it's affected several school districts in Berks County. You were brave and fought a tough battle. May you find peace with God.
