#ThrowbackThursday: Junior DE Anthony Chickillo (bottom) is a third generation Miami Hurricane. His grandfather, Nick Chickillo (top), was a three-year starter and a 1952 All-America selection. His father, Tony Chickillo (middle), was the starting nose guard for the first Hurricanes team to beat a No. 1-ranked team (Penn State, 1981) in the modern era.
Anthony was an All-ACC honorable mention performer in 2012, starting all 12 games at defensive end.
A fourth Chickillo, Wyatt, is a walk-on defensive back for the Canes.
