Anthony Watkins, son of Anthony Watkins, Sr. and Dawn Watkins, was born May 11, 1995 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Sioux City.
Anthony has two sisters, Briannah and Hailey, as well as two brothers, Devin Peterson and Johnathon Watkins.
Anthony is sometimes called “Icky”, “Tony” or “Antwon” by his family and friends.
Anthony’s favorite sport to participate in is motocross.
“Icky’s” favorite movie is Point Break; his favorite musician’s are Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Lil Wayne; and his favorite saying is “YOLO”.
Anthony’s favorite childhood memory is traveling state-to-state with his father during the summer.
When “Tony” was younger, he imagined himself as a professional motocross rider.
If Anthony could relive one moment of his life, it would be to stop himself from crashing his dirtbike because he almost broke his back, fractured a vertebrae, bruised his kidneys, and because he has never felt anything so painful. And now he can’t do things he’d like to do.
In Anthony’s life, the person who has inspired him the most is his mom because she taught him that he could do anything if he set his mind to it.
“Antwon’s” most memorable moment was when his dad bought him his first dirt bike.
Anthony’s advice to underclassmen is, “YOLO!”
Anthony is currently employed at Westside Auto and at the Corner Cafe.
Anthony’s greatest achievement in high school is passing all of his classes.
What “Icky” likes most about high school is hanging out with Mrs. Amy Johnson and Mrs. Amy Walkingstick.
Anthony’s biggest regret about high school is saying an inappropriate comment to a past superintendents wife.
“Tony’s” favorite excuse for being tardy is “The bell rang before I got here.” Anthony does not have a favorite excuse for not turning in his homework on time.
While in high school, Anthony’s favorite class has been being Mrs. Amy Johnson’s student aide because she is awesome.
After high school, Anthony plans to go to Western Iowa Tech Community College for two years for Police Science.
