MyVeronaNJ.com went to one of the first games of the 2010-2011 Verona High School boys basketball season with our then brand-new video camera and we caught Anthony Huber calmly nailing a 1-and-1 that basically won the game for Verona. We noted then that it seemed like Huber, then a junior, was coming into his own as a basketball player. But if, as we wrote, Huber was “catching fire” last season, this year he’s a four-alarm blaze. For that, the Verona Sports Boosters have named Anthony Huber the Senior Athlete of the Week.

Leading the Hillbilly boys to victory in the West Essex Holiday Tournament, “Hubie” put up 36 of the 88 points that Verona scored in its two games: 11 against Caldwell, a 37 to 25 victory, and an astonishing 25 points of the 51 to 32 win over Cedar Grove in the final. Huber was named the most valuable boys player of the tournament for his efforts.

Huber had 71 points to his credit before Verona took on its sixth game against Caldwell on Tuesday afternoon. He added 13 in that game, which wasn’t unfortunately enough to give Verona the victory. But Huber isn’t just a threat on scoring. He had 25 rebounds to his credit the 2011-2012 season before yesterday’s Caldwell game, as well as six steals and eight blocks.

Huber, who will also be on the baseball diamond for VHS in the spring, might well be Verona’s biggest sports fan. When not in a game himself, he can usually be found on the sidelines of some other sporting event, pumping the crowd to cheer as loudly as it can for Verona.

During the 2011-2012 school year, the Verona Sports Boosters will be recognizing a different senior athlete at Verona High School every week. The Boosters support male and female athletes in all VHS sports through a variety of fundraisers and recognition events.
