Inside linebacker / Fullback
Seattle (WA)

Audibles: "Anthony is big, strong and has a great nose for the football. He's very physical and makes a ton of plays." -O'Dea head coach Monte Kohler

2003 Metro League Mountain Division co-defensive MVP ... all-league, first-team on defense ... second-team on offense as a junior.

In the latest Insiders update it's reported that Felder has recently received a verbal offer from Ohio State. He grew up a Husky fan so it might be difficult to get him out of Washington. He holds offers from LSU, Washington, Notre Dame, Penn State and others. Felder is likely to take his visits after the season.
Rivals has new video posted of Felder, and it's pretty nice! He has great speed and qucikness, and fights off blocks well; once he gets to the ball carrier, he hits hard. On one option play, he hit the QB right as the ball was pitched, then veered off and tackled the TB for a loss. Sweet!

On offense, he plays FB, where he shows some decent running ability and good, solid blocking. However, he is an LB, probably an MLB (Kat-like at 6'3", 225, 4.5).

I have been hoping for some time now that more names like this would come out at LB. Critical year for that position IMO. Tressel seems to be putting a net out over the nations best so I'm thinking he agrees. Hope we can hook one.

Sorry about that....

Anthony mentions that Washington has some appeal because it is close to home, but he doesn't name any leaders. He has offers from Washington, Duke, Notre Dame, LSU, ASU, Oregon, Oregon State, Ohio State, and Penn State, and states, "I’m happy with the offers I have now." So, it looks like OSU is in the running to some extent.

Blurb about Felder from Seattle paper

"Nobody's excited about running in the hot sun, but we have to be out here doing this right now," said O'Dea senior Anthony Felder, a 6-2, 225-pound linebacker/fullback who has scholarship offers on the table from defending national champion LSU, UW, Arizona State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oregon, Oregon State and Penn State.

"It's a step we have to take to be one of the top teams in the state," Felder said.
