Biography

Despite what most people would imagine, Andrew spent the vast majority of his childhood and teen years overweight, quitting nearly every sport because he was either too out of shape or too discouraged to compete against other physically gifted athletes.
Since deciding to take a hold of the reigns, throw excuses to the wayside, and looking to see just what he could accomplish, he pushed his doubts to the side and realized his own potential through determination and hard work.  Training morning noon and night looking to gain confidence, he finally did, and decided he too wanted to share this new found security with everyone around him.
“I truly want to make each individual better in one way or another so that they too can realize their own value and truly understand just how unique, beautiful and powerful they are.  Regardless of what life is like outside of the walls of —-, I want to make each athlete smile, enjoy their day just a bit more, and realize their own true potential.  In this I hope everyone can accomplish new levels of confidence for themselves, as well as inspire those around them to enjoy their journey through life and experience it to its fullest potential. Love God. Love People. Pursue Excellence. Choose Joy.”
