Antonio is an Applied Arts & Sciences graduate from North Texas. When he isn’t on the field, you can find him playing video games or hanging out with family. Antonio lists his mom, along with the rest of his family, as his biggest fans and supporters. When he has his earphones in, you can bet he is listening to either Drake or Future. If Antonio weren’t playing football, he would be coaching it, as this sport is his greatest passion.
