Former Gator Reidel Anthony to be honored as an SEC Legend
Former Florida WR Reidel Anthony is among 12 players - one from each SEC school - who will be honored in December as part of the 2009 SEC Football Legends Class.
Anthony was a three-year letterwinner for the Gators, earning first-team All-America and All-SEC honors in 1996. He was also one of three finalists for the 1996 Biletnikoff Award.
During his collegiate career, Anthony had 126 catches for 2,274 yards (18.0 avg.) and added 56 rushing, 358 punt return and 812 kickoff return yards. His career TD/catch ratio of 4.85 (26 TDs/126 catches) is fifth best in school history.
Anthony’s 26 touchdown catches are third-best in SEC history, while his 2,274 receiving yards ranks second in the UF record books and his 126 catches ranks tied for seventh in school history. He holds two of the top five single-game receiving yardage performances in school history (Florida State, 1996 – 193 yds., Arkansas, 1996 – 189 yds.).
The Legends will be honored at this year’s SEC “Weekend of Champions” which culminates with the SEC Football Championship Game on Sat., Dec. 5 at the Georgia Dome.
