Football Offensive Coordinator

Tony Aker’s office shares a wall with the weight room in Van Male, which means one of Aker’s regular activities is straightening the photos and mementos that tumble and fall over “every time someone drops weights next door.” Aker joined the Pioneers in 2016 after five years coaching at his alma mater, the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. He’s grateful to be at Carroll and to work for, and with, head football coach Mark Krzykowski. “I may be a Stevens Point alumnus, but I’m a Pioneer at heart.
