Anthony “Todo” Maranto was bred for the basketball court. From a young age he showed a passion for the game that helped him evolve into the superstar he is today. After an impressive comeback from a devastating injury, Maranto found his way back into the starting lineup for the Blazers and was a crucial part to their recent success. Because of his successful season, he earned High Honorable Mention on HC Sport’s Daily Hamilton County Honor Team.
