Anthony graduated from Diagonal High School in 1992. After graduation he served in the United States Army. He started his career with John Deere in September 2002 where he was recently recognized for his 20 years of dedicated service.
During his time in high school, Anthony excelled in all sports. He loved baseball and basketball and was known for his speed and technical fouls.
