“We cannot thank Tony enough for his love and service to Rollins and building the women’s soccer program to where it is today,” said Director of Athletics Pennie Parker. “As a student-athlete, graduate and coach at Rollins, Tony exemplified all of the values, commitment and dedication that we expect from our students and staff. He will be missed, but we wish him nothing but success at SFA and throughout his career.”
