A prodigiously athletic center back for St. Louis, Anthony Manning sprinted into MLS with his 6-foot-4 frame ready for action. Known for his bruising physicality and surprising amount of distributive ability out of the back, Manning made his mark on T2 in his first year as a pro with more than 1,000 logged minutes. He even scored in a 4-3 win over Newcastle United on July 21, 2015.
COLLEGE: Manning quickly and loudly became one of college soccer’s best defenders during his glittering career from 2011-2014. In four years, he played in 74 matches and contributed five goals in his senior season during the Billikens’ run to the second round of the NCAA tournament.
