Athlete of the Week: Anthony Blue, Dillon

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Although he got to end his high school career playing in last week's North vs. South game, Anthony Blue had a much more storybook ending in his time with Dillon earlier this month.

"To end my career with a state championship, that's a very big honor," he explained. "Two years in a row, too. I loved to go out with a bang, winning another state title."

As a member of that incredible run that produced four state titles in six years, he's happy with the mark he leaves with the Wildcats, and hopes that Jackie Hayes and company are able to continue the success.

"We're a dynasty," Blue said. "We're a dynasty team. We worked hard to get there and that's every high school player's dream is to win a state title. And we worked hard to get there and I think we really deserved it."

That mindset has been easy for him to adapt to, thanks to being brought up in the football culture that exists in his hometown.

"As a Dillon player, the only thing we think on is win," said Blue. "Ever since January in the weight room, we just start to work hard. And we continue to work hard, and all season long we just tell guys we have to get back to state, we have to win us another."
