BERKELEY - Marc Anthony has been named an honorable mention national Defensive Back Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards for his performance against Stanford last Saturday. Anthony earned the same honor earlier in the year for his performance against Nevada.
Anthony had his second interception of the season at the Cal seven yard-line to end a Stanford drive in a 21-3 loss to the Cardinal last Saturday, while also recording a forced fumble, a pass breakup and 1.0 tackle for loss (-1 yard) among his six tackles.
Anthony has played in all eight games with seven starts for the Bears in 2012, recording 40 tackles and co-leading the team with 6.5 tackles for loss (-17 yards). He has also added two interceptions that he has returned for a team-high 64 yards and its only touchdown, three pass breakups and one forced fumble. Anthony has played in 38 career games with 29 starts and is Cal's active career leader with 96 interception return yards; tied for first with one interception return touchdown; second with 126 tackles, five interceptions, 21 pass breakups and 26 passes defended; tied for second with two forced fumbles; and third with 12.0 tackles for loss (-27 yards).
