MOBILE, Ala. - Former Cal football players cornerback Marc Anthony and offensive lineman Brian Schwenke started for a South squad that was a 21-16 winner over the North in the 64th annual Senior Bowl played Saturday at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Anthony contributed a single tackle for the winners.
The South scored on its first two possessions on a two-yard run by E.J. Manuel (Florida State) and a 20-yard pass from Manuel to Michael Williams (Alabama) to take a 14-0 lead it would never relinquish.
Schwenke earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors in 2012 and was one of only five players to start each of the team's 12 games in 2012, while adding the team's Brick Muller Award as the Cal's Most Valuable Lineman on offense and a Cort Majors Team Captain Award also on the offensive side of the ball. He finished his career with 48 games played out of a possible 50 and also started 36 contests over his four seasons with the Bears.
Anthony played in 11 games with 10 starts, recording career highs of 52 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss. He added a career-high-tying two interceptions that he returned a career-high 64 yards and his lone collegiate touchdown, three pass breakups and a forced fumble. He played in 41 games with 32 starts over the last four seasons at Cal.
The Senior Bowl is the nation's most unique football game and football's premier pre-draft event, annually featuring the country's best senior collegiate football stars and top NFL draft prospects on teams representing the North and South which are coached by the entire coaching staffs from two National Football League teams. Senior Bowl practices are also attended by over 800 general managers, head coaches, assistant coaches, scouts and other front office personnel from the 32 National Football League teams, making Mobile and the Senior Bowl the week-long host to a one-of-a-kind NFL Coaches Convention.
