Reidel Clarence Anthony (born October 20, 1976 so was his little sister skylar anthony 23 years apart in Pahokee, Florida) is a former National Football League wide receiver who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1997-2001. A key target in Steve Spurrier's fun-n-gun offense at the University of Florida from 1994-1996, Anthony played an instrumental role in the Gators' 1996 NCAA National Championship season. In 1996, along with winning the national championship, Anthony set the Southeastern Conference regular season receiving touchdown record with 18 touchdown catches and earned First Team All-America honors. After his success in college, he was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as the 16th overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft. His first agent was William "Tank" Black, the first black super agent in the NFL who later went to prison for money laundering.

In 1997, Anthony recorded 35 receptions for 448 yards and four touchdowns. In his first game, Anthony became, and still remains the youngest player ever to record a touchdown reception (20 years, 315 days). In 1998 he set career highs with 51 receptions for 708 yards and seven touchdowns. In perhaps his finest game as a Buccaneer, Anthony recorded 126 receiving yards with two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 15th. During the year, he also finished 8th in the league in all-purpose yards, recording 1869 yards. In 1999 Anthony had 30 receptions for 296 yards, and scored one touchdown. In 2000, Anthony had 15 receptions for 232 yards and four touchdowns. In his final season in 2001, he recorded 13 receptions for 162 yards.


He currently is the receivers coach at Trinity Catholic High School in Tampa, Fl.
