I’ve not seen Tony since we were around 9-10yrs of age. We all played together on prospect when I would visit my aunt lula’s house. His brother Michael & I are the same age. I just learned of his untimely passing today when a mutual friend Tony Martin told me he was headed to a funeral. I asked who and he stated Tony Covington. I nearly dropped to my knees.

Coach Antonio....(smile)

I have so many favorite moments. One moment would be talking to you every Saturday morning at 7:00am discussing how the RAMS will "Show Out". June would be asking us why are we up so early. We would laugh and tell her to go back to sleep.
Another moment is when you would always make me get Crown when I wanted Hennessey. BTW, I still don't like Crown. Lastly and most important, when you made sure my son had a strong, father figure in his life.

I must be honest. This is one of the most difficult times in my life. You were more than a friend. You were and are my big brother.
I will not be able to fight with you anymore. Man, could we fight.
I am going to miss you calling me saying "Alright Ms. Anita, that's enough. Call me so we can talk about the girls and the boys." You will never be forgotten. I can hear you now telling me to "Stay Focused". I'm trying Coach. But, it's hard. I know by the Grace of God, I will be ok later. But, for now this really hurts. I'm so glad you will be able to return to your mom and other family members, players, and cheerleader. I can't be selfish. God wanted His son back. I'm just Thankful He gave all of us just a little time with you. I love you Antonio Covington and thank you for being my big brother!
