About Anthony Lucas
Anthony Lucas was on the receiving end of Arkansas Razorback's quarterback Clint Stoerner’s 27-yard game-winning touchdown pass against the defending National Champions, Tennessee Volunteers in 1999. This play is referred to as one of many “The Catch” in Arkansas Razorback football. Anthony is ranked 2nd on the Razorbacks Career receiving yards list with 2,879 receiving yards and is ranked 2nd with 23 touchdown receptions. He’s in the top 5 on the school’s career-record list with 137 catches. His average of 21.0 yards-per-catch set an SEC career record and he also set a Razorback record of 10 games with over 100 yards receiving during his career.
Anthony graduated from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville in 1999 with a degree in Social Work. He was drafted in 2000 by the Green Bay Packers. Anthony was released from the Packers in 2001, and the Dallas Cowboys signed him in August 2001. He spent two years with the Cowboys before several knee injuries forced him to retire. He decided to go back to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, and received his Master’s in December 2004 in Adult Education.
Anthony truly loves coaching football at Pulaski Academy in Little Rock under the leadership of Coach Kevin Kelley. Anthony coaches WR’s and teaches Middle School Physical Education.
In 2020, he was inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.
