Former Panther Named First-Team All-American for Second StraightYear
St. Pius X High School

January, 2014

Former St. Pius X High School standout and current University of Texas place-kicker, Anthony Fera, was named a first-team All-American on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

This marks the second straight year a former Panther football player was recognized as a first-team All-American in a major Division I program (Venric Mark, Northwestern, 2012).

Fera was a first-team All-America choice by The Football Writers Association of America, Walter Camp and the American Football Coaches Association. He became the first consensus All-American place-kicker in UT history. His 90.9 percent field-goal accuracy is currently the second best for a season in UT history and is tied for the fourth-best mark nationally this season.

A year ago at NU, Mark was named a first-team All-American at punt returner by the Football Writers Association of America. He was sidelined this season with an ankle injury.

As players at St. Pius X, Fera and Mark helped lead the Panthers to a district title in 2008. Fera was a member of the 2007 state championship team, earned honors as a 2008 Under Armour All-American and was a two-time all-state selection. Mark was a two-time all-state honorable mention and all-district selection, the district’s MVP and led SPX to a TAPPS state semifinal berth in 2009.
