Tony was a three year starter for Gary Donaldson’s squad and was named to the News-Times’ All Area team as a junior. He had solid success during his first two years on the varsity but in his senior season Tony really took off as a player, leading the Hatters in goals with 17 and assists with 25. His efforts earned him All-FCIAC, All State, All New England and All American honors. The 1983 captain was named team MVP. Tony finished his career with 31 goals and 47 assists. In two of Tony’s four years at DHS the soccer team won the Western Division of the FCIAC. After high school Tony continued his playing career at Post College where he was All New England Junior College and played on the National Junior College Tournament team. Tony continued playing after college on the Portuguese Club team where they were state champions and the semi-pro Union Sports where his squad also won a state championship.
