Le was named to the NPF All-District team as a defensive tackle in 2012. He was also a Wyoming Valley Conference first-team offensive and defensive lineman. Le was named a second-team all-state defensive lineman by the Pennsylvania Football News and Honorable Mention defensive lineman by EasternPAFootball.com. He continued his football career playing four seasons at Bloomsburg University as a defensive tackle.

Former Wyoming Valley West coach Pat Keating on Le: “When I think back on Tony’s time at WVW a few things stand out to me.  He was athletic, explosive, versatile, and fierce.  Offensively he was one the best pulling guards I’ve coached in my career.  He had a unique ability to pull on different run schemes to get up on 2nd and 3rd level defenders.  With that being said it was how he played on defense that made him stand out as a player.  His versatility allowed us to move him around and play multiple positions on the defensive line on any given Friday, and his explosiveness was off the charts.  He played with relentless effort on Friday nights because that’s how he practiced.  Every drill he was ever in was always done with 100% effort.”
