Antone Warren graduated from Fern Creek High School High School in Louisville, Ky.  in 2013 and due to academics he headed off to a national JUCO, Kankakee Community College, Illinois.   He was a two star ranked player with D-1 interest from East Tennessee State  and Northern Arizona .  According to JUCOService.com, after one year at Kankakee, he  transferred to Volunteer State Community College in Gallatin, Tennessee where he did not play basketball but attended classes.

anton warran11This is the second year that Antone Warren has been with the Antelope Valley Basketball program.  He needed to improve his academics and upgrade his conditioning and things were looking very positive for “Ace”  and AVC till one month before the pre-conference season began last year. 

During a a spirited practice, Warren went up for a thunderous dunk and came down with a badly fractured finger.   Surgery followed and he missed the complete season 2015-16 for AVC on a injury red shirt.    

The big man is now back to 100% and if there is any silver lining in this injury it is two fold;

  1. He has worked hard on his academics and says his last semester he pulled out a 3.0 GPA.
  2. He has spent time on the track and pounding the weights in weight room along with classes.

ace...weight

Antone continues to improve on the floor and conditioning along with his academics and he is going to be dominant force in the upcoming season for AVC and for a lucky university who needs a dominant big man…and who doesn’t!
