ELITE JUNIOR: Anree St. Amour

North Gwinnett Football

North Gwinnett defensive lineman Anree St. Amour has had a big impact on his team’s success. The Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in Georgia and the No. 5 team in the southeast, and Anree’s presence on the defensive line has had a big impact on the outcomes of games.


On Sept. 13, he helped North Gwinnett beat the then sixth-ranked Norcross Blue Devils with a decisive 36-17 win.


In four games, Anree and the rest of the defense have only surrendered four touchdowns and none to unranked teams allowing just 7.0 points per game.


His natural abilities and size, 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, have been noticed by a plethora of schools. He already has offers from Boston College, Georgia Tech, Tennessee and Missouri. In addition to those offers, he has raised interest from Louisville, Duke, Kentucky and Texas. He spent this past summer going to camps at Missouri, Louisville, Duke and Kentucky.


Anree’s brilliance spans his whole life and not just on the football field. He is a member of the Student Government Association at North Gwinnett and also has an impressive 3.7 GPA. Although he would like to play football for a living, he has aspirations of pursuing a career in engineering and business.


Anree also does his best to help his community when he isn’t busy with football and schoolwork. He and his teammates helped package food for kids in Africa and Haiti a few years ago in their free time to try and help out people less fortunate than themselves. He also tries to help with the concession stands during ninth grade games. There’s a lot of heavy lifting involved, so the parents and volunteers running the concession stand breathe a sigh of relief when Anree walks through the door.


It’s hard to believe that Anree can find the time to do all these things at such a successful rate, but it is obvious that his faith is something that has helped give him strength over the years.


“Outside of football I’m interested in ministry. Talking to people about God and what he wants for us,” Anree said.


Anree’s worked hard his whole life, he has a good head on his shoulders, and he will almost certainly see success at North Gwinnett and beyond regardless of what path he decides to take.
