Q&A With Anthony Bonanni
D9and10Sports: How did you first get involved in sports and did you like it?
A: I grew up in a football family, always played around the yard and played as soon as I was eligible and have played ever since. I’ve always loved the game of football.
D9and10Sports: Who has been your biggest influence in life and why?
A: My dad. He’s always been there. When there’s been an issue my young self saw as impossible to solve, he’s always found a way and he really has everything I want in life.
D9and10Sports: What is your favorite high school sports memory?
A: My favorite high school memory is beating our rival all through the years. After two years of getting beat down, and after a week of trash talk, going out and putting up 47 points and only letting up one touchdown on a broken defensive play.
D9and10Sports: What is your favorite social media platform and why?
A: My favorite social media is probably Instagram. There’s really everything on there from sports to sick car builds.
D9and10Sports: What would someone who is meeting you for the first time be surprised to find out about you?
A: I’m pretty obsessed with cars and trucks and going out and breaking stuff just to go fix it during the weekend. It’s what I work for.
D9and10Sports: If there was one period in history you could go back to, what would it be and why?
A: I would go back to my elementary school days. Everything was so much simpler, no issues, everything was just so pure and you couldn’t see all of the bad in the world. And I would kill just to have one more family dinner with my whole family.
D9and10Sports: What will you tell your kids someday about living through the COVID-19 pandemic?
A: You’re lucky you didn’t have to live through it, but it’s changed my life more than anything ever has to be honest.
D9and10Sports: What is your ideal place to live? Country, City, Suburb and why?
A: I would live in the country. I like to have my privacy and be as loud asIi want shooting guns and having loud exhaust without having any complaints.
D9and10Sports: Is there anything you wish we would have asked you? If so, what is the answer?
A: Nope not really, just happy for the opportunity!
