Congratulations to Westminster Academy’s Quarterback Anthony Barbar for being voted scoutSMART’s Top Florida High School Player for Week 2.
The junior captain led his team to victory on Friday, Sep 02, 2022 over Bradenton Christian with 376 yards, 2 TD’s and a 2 pt. conversion. Barbar was also named MAXPREPS Overall Player of the Game for his performance.
The impressive young player received his first D1 scholarship offer from Florida Atlantic University on September 5th, 2022. His ultimate dream is to play football at the collegiate level.
Last season Barbar was named to the Florida Class 2A All-State High School Football Team in February 2022 as QB Honorable mention. In 2021 he was named to FHSAA All-State, All-County and All-Conference QB.
Barbar is a leader on and off the field. When he is not working on his footwork and mechanics with his teammates and coaches, he works diligently to give back to his community, to better himself and walk in humility and selflessness. In his free time, Barbar volunteers with both Food for the Poor and Homes United. He is also a member of Ignite Student Leadership, Gallaway Student Leadership, and completed the Youth Leadership Broward program.
When asked what sets him apart as a leader, he said, “Being a leader is the most important part of my job as QB. Being a leader means serving my teammates and encouraging each of them to be the best they can be.” He worked hard in the offseason with his coaches to grow as a player and we are looking forward to watching him and the rest of the WA Lions compete this season.
Barbar received more than 4,300 votes this week, continue to vote for scoutSMART Florida Player of the Week to recognize your favorite players!
