Gone are Marc Loving and Austin Gardner.  Enter senior Anthony Glover, Jr., who has emerged from the shadows, to be the leader of this year’s St. John’s Jesuit Titans basketball team.

As Toledo Blade sports writer Steve Junga expresses in his feature story that was published by The Blade on January 2, 2014, Glover has progressed from bit-part player to supporting role to lead actor.

The 6-8 Loving was Ohio’s 2013 Mr. Basketball and is now playing at Ohio State. Gardner is playing at the University of Findlay.

Their graduation created a new marquee role for Glover, whose offseason work ethic went above and beyond.

“I’m not one for superlatives, but Anthony probably has done more work on physical improvement, mental improvement, and spiritual improvement than anybody,” Titan head coach Ed Heintschel said. “He had to be a combination of Marc Loving and Austin Gardner coming into this season, and that’s a pretty big task. He’s done a great job with that.”

Working to improve his game is a passion that was instilled in him by his father, Anthony, who was a starter on Scott’s 1990 Division I state championship team
