Mark Anthony was one of the most revered players — on and off the pitch — in A&M history, partly owing to his joining the fledgling team in 1969 as a young cadet from Monahans. He would go on to lead the team in its epic defeat of LSU in 1974 in what was billed as the national championship game even before USA Rugby was created. Mark led the team to an additional five TRU titles. Along the way he was a perennial TRU All Star, as well as stalwart on the Western USA Select Side. He also was a member of the Houston Heathens. Above all, Mark was known as a true gentleman leader and a gifted singer. Sadly, he passed away in 2021.
