Anthony attended Milton School and graduated from Cape Henlopen High School. He played football and basketball; some games he would get so upset with the coach thinking he should be playing getting the job done better than the other player.  As he was with his boys Jordan and Lil Anthony he swore he could outshoot them. Then he passed it on to his grandson Jeremiah who would give him a good work out.

Anthony often worked after school laying carpet, kitchen floors, plumbing, working for Aunt Tina at Burger King. Now that has was harder than the service, working for his Aunt Lisa was easier.
