Tony Gonzalez Net Worth $20 Million
Tony Gonzalez is a man of a pretty vivid ancestry – African, Mexican and Native American by his mother and Cape Verdean, Jamaican and Scottish by his father. His interest in sports dates back to his school days at Huntington Beach High School in California, where he was active in football, baseball and basketball. Tony’s multiple sports talent earned him his first rewards: Orange County MVP, Sunset League MVP and in his senior year, alongside one of the best golfers in the world, Tiger Woods, Orange County High School Athlete of the Year.
Tony enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley, where he majored in communications, and continued to play football and basketball. In his final year, he was confronted with a thoughtful decision – football or basketball, both potentially paying well? His long and successful NFL career as well as his impressive net worth has shown that he made the right decision choosing football.
Tony Gonzalez’s NFL career didn’t officially begin until the NFL 1997 Draft, when he was selected as the 13th pick of the first round by the Kansas City Chiefs – he was declared as one of the top tight-ends on the draft. His performances in his rookie season helped the Chiefs to set the best record in the American Football Conference. By constantly improving in the upcoming years, Tony has broken several NFL records – he is the only tight end in the history of the league with 107 touchdown passes and still holds the record for total reception yards (14,268), and was also the first player in that position with over 1000 receptions. These accomplishments have, undoubtedly, helped increase his overall net worth.
In 2010 Tony was traded to the Atlanta Falcons where he finished his illustrious career in 2013. During his career, Tony Gonzalez played 271 games in total and scored 111 touch downs. He also appeared in 14 Pro Bowls and is the Pro Bowl all-time receptions leader.
Apart from playing football, Tony has tried his luck in various business enterprises. During his stay in Kansas City, he co-founded Extreme Clean 88, a commercial cleaning service. In 2009, with Mitzi Dulan a former nutritionist of the Chiefs, he co-authored the book called “The All-Pro Diet”, in which he acknowledged details about his workout routine and diet. In the same year, Tony co-founded a sports nutrition company, All-Pro Science. Also, he has collaborated with FitStar, mobile fitness app company, and appeared in several TV series and shows, among which the most popular include “Celebrity Cooking Showdown”, “Oprah Winfrey’s The Big Give”, “One Tree Hill” and “NCIS”. His most recent TV performance was at the National Geographic Channel where he continues hosting a show “You Can’t Lick Your Elbow”. All these ventures have certainly made a positive impact on Tony Gonzalez’s fortune.
When it comes to his personal life, he is in a relationship with his girlfriend October, with whom he has a daughter and a son. Although it is not official, they consider themselves married and performed a commitment ceremony in 2007. Tony has another son from his previous relationship with entertainment reporter Lauren Sánchez. He currently resides in Huntington Beach, California with his family.
He is passionate about helping out medically challenged and ill children. His charity organization, Tony Gonzalez Foundation is an active supporter of The Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Shadow Buddies – he has his own Shadow Buddy, a doll designed to be a friend to ill children. Tony is also a host of “Shop with Jock”, his annual event when he takes 100 underprivileged kids for Christmas shopping.
