#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.
“There is no substitute for conditioning. Some coaches say it starts with discipline. I think it starts with conditioning. As you start to work your players to get them in condition. The discipline will come, and togetherness and unity will come. Conditioning before everything else.” - Jimmy Johnson

“I was never the biggest, I was never the fastest, I was never the strongest. The only bread and butter I had was work.. At the end of the day, it’s all about hard work. And if you outwork me, you’re a hell of a man.” - Ray Lewis
