Universitiy spokeswoman Vanessa Littleton says the 22-year-old Anthony “is listed in stable condition after being admitted to the hosptial.”
The News-Star reported that Anthony was taken to Northern Louisiana Medical Center in Ruston and that teammates say he suffered an apparent heart attack.
Littleton says the 6-foot-4, 275-pound Anthony first complained of chest pains Thursday afternoon. She says there was no indication that the incident was heat-related.
Anthony showed no signs of distress when the team went to a meeting room to cool down and hydrate around 11:30 a.m. Last season, Anthony was the only defensive lineman in the country with five interceptions.
A two-time member of the Boxtorow.com/BASN HBCU All-America football team, he finished 10th in the league with 76 tackles and third overall in both sacks (8.0) and tackles-for-loss (15.0) in 2009.
