With the start of a new football season, and for many their last, senior Anthony Diaz shares his thoughts on his last season of football and what the sport means to him, both on and off the field. Diaz started playing football his sophomore year and credits his reason for joining the team to himself as well as his friends. Football is not a traditional sport in the Diaz household, but Shauna Diaz, Anthony’s mother, remembers her husband’s influence on Anthony’s decision to play the sport. “Anthony’s father played high school football and when he came back from the army, he even played football for Fresno State for awhile,” Shauna Diaz said. “Anthony’s father was a large influence on him because he’s always looked up to him, and Anthony wanted to make him proud by following his dad’s footsteps.”
