Lumberton grad is LU's leader in sacks


Recommended Posts

Anthony Beard is considered a grandpa by some of his teammates.


But the fifth-year senior linebacker from Lumberton doesn't mind the jabs. In fact, his extra time at Lamar University has some advantages, he said.


"They joke around and ask me if it's my 10th year in college," Beard said with a laugh. "But being one of the oldest guys on the team, I feel like I have that mentorship. I mentor the young guys and make sure they do the right things."


So far this season, Beard has been one of the unquestioned leaders on the Cardinals' defense. He is third on the team in tackles (19) tied for first in tackles for loss (3.5) and the leader in sacks (1.5).
