Noted as a great run stopper. Probably the trait on the field that most interests recruiters is his aggressiveness. Tony has got off to a good start in his senior season. In first game he had 6 tackles.  He followed that up with a 13 tackle performance in his second game along with a fumble recovery. In this third game he picked up seven more tackles. Tony already has three sacks on the season.
