Anthony started announcing Indian games in 1984 at the original Indian Stadium more than 36 years ago and never accepted any payment from the school district.

Anthony has that perfect measured voice for announcing High School football games. A true one of a kind. You could always count on him to voice just the right amount disappoint when Santa Fe endured a loosing play (there were many), but then the same applied for when a winning play occurred. He was just the best at what he does. No one else did it like he did. Thanks for your years of service.

I do have the honor of Anthony coming to vote for me on a Saturday city election once while he was on his way to a Civil War Enactors event. It was my pleasure to have a uniformed confederate soldier vote for me!

All of the best Anthony. You’ve earned it.

Good friend Anthony. In school I knew him under a different moniker but I cannot repeat it here.

He wore a clever outfit for "Kiddie Day" while in high school but to my knowledge no one took a picture of him in it.

At a football game where Santa Fe was not doing well he announced highlights would be shown at Legacy.com. I later learned that's where you look up obituaries.
