Carrollwood Day’s Tony Livingston commits to Florida

Carrollwood Day’s Tony Livingston, a two-sport star, became the first area player in the 2022 class to commit to Florida when he publicly announced his decision Thursday night. 

Livingston (featured photo above courtesy of JJ Battle/Battle Tested Photography) is a 6-foot-6, 250 pound offensive tackle who is athletic enough to play tight end, too. The four-star recruit is rated as the 18th-best player in the state and 19-best offensive tackle in the nation in the 2022 class according to 247 Sports’ composite list.

Though Livingston’s primary sport is football, he also played a key role in helping Carrollwood Day’s basketball team win a district title and reach the Class 3A region semifinals. Six days ago, Florida became the first school to extend offers to Livingston in both sports. 

He could end up playing both in college, much like his Carrollwood Day teammate Mike Trigg plans to do at Southern California this coming fall.
