Clocking in at 5’8″, 166, Anthony Greene set a school record in his Senior year while at Wake Forest with 7 interceptions for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also set a school record his when he intercepted 4 passes in one game during the final game of his Junior year. This net him recognition from Sports Illustrated for his efforts. By the time he left the Demon Deacons, A.J. recorded 17 interceptions and 245 tackles in his 4 years at Wake Forest. In 1989, he was selected by the New York Giants in the 9th round of the 1989 draft. He then spent the season on the developmental squad of the New York Giants and much of the preseason during 1990 on the Buccaneers.
The WLAF Barcelona Dragons selected Greene with the 7th overall pick of the defensive back portion of the league’s inaugural draft. He’d make 40 tackles and 3 picks for 22 yards. With the additional seasoning A.J. was picked back up by the Giants and played in two games during the 1991 NFL season. He returned to the Dragons for the 1992 season, and pull down another 3 interceptions for 16 yards. With the WLAF on hiatus after the ’92 season, Greene returned stateside and now lives in the Carolinas.
I had previously attempted to get A.J. a few years ago, but didn’t have any luck. Buoyed by the recent successes I had with retry replies TTM, I was optimistic that I could track him down. With Greene knocked off the list, I am now down to my final 6 of the ProSet 1991 WLAF inserts.
