Occupation: Vol for Life Coordinator for The University of Tennessee Football Team and Former NFL Player for the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons
Antone was born in Fort Valley, Georgia, and grew up as the youngest of eight children. He didn't start gaining weight until he was 15 years old, and at that point he was 6'5" and weighed 305 pounds. He graduated high school weighing 349 pounds. But the weight was more of a blessing than a curse, as it led to a college scholarship to play football at The University of Tennessee where he received a bachelor's degree in urban studies. After college he played offensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons from 1991 to 1997.
Since the show, the married father of four is enjoying life and living it to its fullest. Antone is more active now than ever before with his two daughters and two sons and takes them on rollercoaster rides, hikes and other outdoor activities. Antone works for The University of Tennessee Athletic Department as the Vol for Life Coordinator for its football team. Antone is also the Life Skills and Character Education Director for The Tennessee Volunteers.
