“Surviving the Stop”
This is a speech that Tony has designed to help educate people on how to survive any type of stop by a police officer. In light of all the recent deadly incidents in our country involving law enforcement, Tony wants to educate people on things to do to survive a stop. “Surviving the Stop” highlights the ADA’s (Attitude, Decisions, and Accountability) of surviving any type of police stop one might encounter. Stop by Tony’s booth and learn more about surviving a police stop in the best possible way.
S.A.V.E.D-(not a religious book)

The book help young adults focus on a sense of self, confidence, a plan for education, sports participation, character, decision making, and how to interact with law enforcement. Tony considers his book to be a student’s guide to success in sports and life. Tony is currently working on his second book due out in the fall which will be a similar book focused on students only.
