Hello Juniors athletes and families, I’m coach Anthony! I'm proud to say this is my 5th season with Wisconsin Juniors! I am heavily involved with many of the programs at Juniors. Anytime coaches are needed to support a camp or project I am there. Coaching volleyball is a passion, I enjoy helping and watching our athletes develop their skill and love of the game. During the off-season I am the Wilmot High School Girls Volleyball JV2 coach and instruct motorcycle performance track riding. I love sharing knowledge to others to obtain their performance goals.
I am a military retiree after serving 20 years of honorable military service in combat medicine. I have earned a Bachelor of Business Administration and Marketing & Bachelor of Criminal Justice.
I reside in Illinois with my beautiful wife Lorie and daughter Kobi. My son lives and works in the Philippines.
I look forward to providing a positive experience for all our Wisconsin Juniors athletes and making some amazing memories!

I played two years at the College of Lake County and now I am finishing off my last two years playing volleyball at Carthage College.

Family: I live with my mom and brother. My mom works from home watching kids and my brother is studying marketing at the University of Illinios (Urbana-champaign).
Favorite Sports Memory: Was my sophomore year at CLC, where my team had only 7 players who could play and we drove down to Morton College who we had not won against that year and the year before. We lost of our conference game to them earlier in the year and it was really devastating and I was worried about this game because I wanted to win but again we only had 7 people. But we got there with good energy and started the game off strong and later won the game in 5 sets. It felt amazing because I really wanted to beat that team and we finally did. Everyone worked really hard and we had plenty of amazing plays that I bet many of us watch over again at times.
