    Tony has had an outstanding athletic career, first as a basketball player at Ramona and then at UCR from 1973-1975. Tony then became a successful educator in the Riverside Unified School District for 36 years.

    Starting at Ramona, Tony was a teacher, basketball coach and athletic director for 23 years. In 1978, still only in his mid-20’s, he put his stamp on the basketball program as he took over head coaching duties. In his 11 years as coach, his teams played fundamental, tough defense, following the Rams tradition set by Tom Williams and Doug Stockham.

    Tony became the Director of Athletics at Martin Luther King in August 2001 and would stay in that position through June 30, 2015, In his 13 years as AD, Tony helped to transition, guide and lead the Wolves Athletic Department through its infancy to one of the most academically and athletically successful programs in the CIF Southern Section.   His leadership was vital as the Wolves had to “step up their game” going from the Sunkist League to the old Ivy League to the Big VIII and dealing with the challenge that each transition presented. During his tenure, King athletics was wildly successful by winning 7 CIF Southern Section titles, 1 CIF State Championship and 119 League crowns. In 2015, King was awarded the Citrus Belt Athletic Directors Association Sportsmanship Award. This award honors member schools that emphasize sportsmanship and conduct their athletic program with honor.  Tony’s philosophy was one of, “Surround yourself with good people and good things happen.”

    Tony is a member of the Citrus Belt Athletic Directors Hall of Fame; the Ramona High school Hall of Fame and on the RSHOF Wall of Distinction.
