Anthony Mejia-Acosta

Gila Ridge senior DB


The lowdown:

Anthony virtually shut down half of the field when he was positioned out wide. He recorded 47 tackles, but more importantl­y, hauled in 12 intercepti­ons — including one returned for a touchdown. Anthony’s contributi­ons helped lead the Hawks to the 4A state semifinals for the first time in program history.

Coach John Ellegood:

“Anthony has a knack for getting his hands on the football. He is very good at what he does and is confident in winning 50/50 balls. Very few people were successful when throwing in his direction.”
