When we talk about sports’ greatest moments, we talk about them like they’re frozen in amber. A championship, a stoppage time goal, The Hand of God, The Flu Game, The Shot Heard ‘Round the World: we talk about these moments as indelible, timeless. But for all the heroics that athletes give us, the permanence of these moments is built on bodies just as frail as ours.

This Day in History

Saturday, 23 October 1999

Anton Corneal is inducted into Erskine College's Athletic Hall of Fame.

Anton Corneal, from Maracas Valley, Trinidad, was the youngest member of the Trinidad National Team, coached by his father, and he had already honed his skills in World Cup preliminary competition before entering college.

Though opponents would double- and triple-team Corneal, he became the catalyst of the Erskine attack, a role he would hold for four years. As a freshman his ball control also helped an Erskine defense that scored a team record 10 shutouts that season. The Fleet tied South Carolina, 0-0, lost 1-0 to Duke and 2-0 to Clemson, and outscored its first six opponents, 16-1. Although the Fleet lost in the Area finals, Erskine completed the season 11-5-3, won the NAIA District 6 Championship, and held opponents to 15 goals in 19 matches.

That opened an impressive career in which Corneal set a team record for assists (47) and scored 38 goals, while leading Erskine to three district championships and into the NAIA National Tournament in 1982 with a 17-5 record, Erskine's finest ever up to that time. The Flying Fleet defeated South Carolina in overtime in 1983 and captured the first two Erskine Invitational Tournaments in 1982 and 1983 against nationally-ranked NAIA competition. Erskine's record during Corneal's four years was 42-22-5, with 15 of the 22 losses coming against NCAA competition. Corneal was all-district four times and three times won All-South and NAIA All-American honors.

His success helped attract world-class Trinidad soccer players to Erskine, including his future teammates Graeme Rodriquez and Veron Skinner, both also All-Americans. Later, Trinidad players such as Brian Haynes, Garth Pollonais, Peter Lewis, and Crispin St. Louis would help maintain Erskine's winning soccer tradition. The tradition of fine Trinidadian players at Erskine continues until the present time.

Corneal's demeanor, as an athlete and as a student, made him popular on the field and on the campus. His magician-like skills made him a crowd-pleaser without showboating. Pleasant and smiling, he exuded happiness in his game and held his temper despite drawing numerous fouls.
