Tony has been a basketball fan since he was a small child. Growing up in Dayton, OH he enjoyed watching the University of Dayton basketball team as well as the Cleveland Cavaliers and even some of the local high school teams. Tony played four years of basketball at Carroll High School in Dayton, graduating in 2012.
After graduating, still wanting to stay close to the game, he coached several teams ranging from 3rd grade all the way to 6th grade. He graduated from Wright State University in December 2016 with a degree in Liberal Studies. His goal is to work in the Sports Writing business covering Prep Hoops.
