Bio: Anthony is the middle brother of the Verardi trio. He joined the team in spring 2009 on the recommendation of goalie Chris D'Ascanio. The team was going through a restructuring phase and required committed players with some skill. Check & check. Anthony has led them the team in points in all 3 seasons he has played. He is consistently in the top 5 in league scoring. He was voted summer season MVP by his teammates.

Coach Da Ponte is blessed to have someone with Anthony's talent on the team. He is a workhorse who plays in every situation. When lined up with brother Michael & friend Daniel Ascenzi, they formed the most productive line in the team's history. Anthony will be an important member of the team for years to come.
