Sean Anthony gets a nod as a Defensive Player of the Year | Instant News

SEAN Anthony added another big award to his famous 2019 season collection after being named the Defender of the Year by the PBA Press Corps.

Anthony got a nod from the PBA clerk after a season in which he also gained a place on the Mythical First team and the All-Defensive Team.

NorthPort veterans should receive the award on March 16 at the Novotel Araneta Center during the PBA Press Corps award but the event was postponed due to a coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).

The program, which will be aired on Cignal TV, will be held at a later date.

Anthony joined people like Chris Ross, Juni Mar Fajardo, Marc Pingris, Chris Jackson, Freddie Abuda, Gabe Norwood, and Poy Erram, who won awards in 2018.
