Toyota Team Player: Anthony Duruji
POTOMAC, Md. (ABC7) —
St. Andrews senior Anthony Duruji is taking his talents to Phoenix.
"It's just a blessing from God," Anthony Duruji said.
On national television, during Final Four weekend in Arizona, Duruji will take part in the National High School Slam Dunk Championship.
"After reviewing my talents they had selected me, so I was like 'wow that's crazy,'" said Duriji.
St. Andrews Head Coach Kevin Jones, attends the final four every year, but this one will be much more special.
"Definitely a little more special to have a participant in the festivities, I definitely can't wait," said Kevin Jones.
It's a moment his head coach will cherish as the 6-foot-7, Duruji, is headed to play basketball at Louisiana Tech next year.
"Anthony was a 1000 point scorer for three years for us, he was selected to play in the prestigious Capital Classic game, he was a two-time All-MAC player, he takes AP classes, he is the complete package," said Jones.
Congratulations Anthony Duruji you are this week's Toyota Team Player.
