More about Tony: Tony is a veteran in the CSB/SJU Office of Admission (he started in 1997 and was a student tour guide for three years prior). As an undergraduate student, Tony was active in broadcasting, holding the positions of Music Director and Sports Director at the campus radio station, KJNB. That interest led him to complete internships at KFAN Radio and KMSP-TV in the Twin Cities. These days you can hear Tony’s voice at Johnnie Football home games in his part-time role as a public address announcer.  Away from CSB/SJU, Tony engages with his kids’ activities, serving as a coach and board member for Hopkins Area Little League.  He also serves as a Fantasy Football Commissioner for the Amelse Family Fun League, a 12-team league with plenty of sibling rivalries, both young and old.
