Anthony Marcella: Varsity Wrestling
Olivia Martin

Multi-sport athletes have a lot on their plate, but for junior Anthony Marcella, each sport aids his life in different ways. Marcella is a tri-sport athlete who participates in track, football, and wrestling. His football journey began in third grade while track and wrestling were more recent choices.

Even though Marcella has played football for the longest amount of time, he uses wrestling and track to aid his progress in football. Marcella plays linebacker and running back for the football team, his training in other sports allows for him to gain the extra strength and endurance that he needs to aid in his success.

“Football is my main sport. I started track and wrestling to help gain strength and progress towards my football goals,” Marcella said.

His use of wrestling and track provides an advantage that many other football players do not have. With this many sports under his belt, Marcella embraces the support of his family.

“My mom and sister come to support me at my games and meets. Their presence really encourages me to do good,” Marcella said.

Support can go a long way, and for Marcella, the support he receives is another factor in his athletic achievements. As track and wrestling are individual sports that earn him specific achievements, they highlight the benefits of having a team in football for Marcella. For this reason, Marcella has chosen football as his number one choice of sport.

“I like football the most because I get to play in a team. Everyone has each others’ backs,” Marcella said.

Marcella’s love for sports fuels his athletic passions he will pursue in the future.

“I look forward to practice everyday because it helps me get better and I get to enjoy my time with my friends,” Marcella said
