Sophomore provides athleticism, depth to feared unit

Tuesday, January 01, 2013 12:19 am
Each day this week, The News-Sentinel will profile a Notre Dame football player leading up to the BCS National Championship game in Miami on Jan. 7.WHAT: No. 69 sophomore defensive lineman

WHERE: Bishop Dwenger High School

2012 STATS: Played in all 12 games and recorded 11 total tackles, including two for a loss. Also sacked the quarterback once and had three quarterback hurries.

THE SKINNY: Very athletic despite having incredible mass (6-foot-6, 300 pounds). Relied upon for depth on one of the nation’s best defensive fronts.

IRISH DEFENSIVE COACH MIKE ELSTON SAYS: “As a young kid in his first year, Tony was up and down in terms of whether he was going to be a physical player or not. Once he realized what his strength was, he embraced that and was able to play with that type of demeanor. Tony played all three positions across the front (and)… added depth and allowed us to do things. He’s a guy that has been able to play with the size and the mass that he put on. He plays very physical and imposes his will.”
