Recently, the 6’5, 205 pound defensive end from St. Thomas, Ontario signed with Guelph Gryphons.  Anton will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

“I chose Guelph because it had the “Home” feel,” expressed Anton of his commitment.  “The staff and students were welcoming.”

“The history of the school played a major part. The campus was beautiful and the school has a great reputation for its academic accomplishments. The football program is one of the best in Canada, the resources are incredible. The coaches were extremely important in my decision, they created a family atmosphere. Guelph created an environment where you can go in and grow as a student athlete.”
