Tony Martone
Everyday Star

Tony Martone, an outstanding Central Catholic High School quarterback, led his Irish team of 1950-1951 to a state championship. For the past six decades, he has been a Fort Wayne champion serving as a tireless volunteer. His work on civic projects like the Gingerbread and Embassy Christmas Tree Festivals, IPFW River Fest and Mastodon Projects are just a few efforts that prompted Governor Mitch Daniels to name him a Distinguished Hoosier in 2008. Martone’s key service, however, is to the city’s young people where he has served for over 50 years as a Volunteer Director of Athletics for Fort Wayne’s Police Athletic League. Nearly 1,000 youngsters participate under his direction each year.
