|Title:||Class of 2007|
Anthony Price was an outstanding basketball player for the Worcester State College men's basketball program in the late 1980's. Tony is the 11th all-time leading scorer in Worcester State men's basketball history, scoring 1,347 points over his three-year career from 1986 to 1990. A two-year captain and all-conference selection, he is also the all-time leading shot blocker in Lancer history with 149 career blocks. Tony was selected as the team MVP three times. He led the conference in rebounding his junior year and was second in scoring his senior season.
Off the court, Tony was an active member of the Worcester State community as he was a member of Third World Alliance, Upward Bound and led a petition on campus to have Black Studies courses reinstated at the College. In February of 2007, Tony was honored by the Massachusetts State Lottery and Boston College with their "The Heights Award" which "recognizes Outstanding Individuals for their contributions to women's athletics".
Tony has volunteered with and started numerous youth activities in his native Boston throughout the years including becoming the director of youth and recreation at the Lena Park Community Development Corporation where he started the first women's basketball program.
Tony is currently an assistant athletic director and women's basketball coach at Simmons College in Boston where he is the school's all-time winningest coach and was named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in 2003 after a stellar 16-9 season. Tony and his wife Paula are the proud parents of five children.
It is with great pleasure that we induct Anthony Price into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame
