Andre was a welcomed person in our home during his career back at Memphis State on every game day on the television. I feel honored that I went to school with two great ball players, Andre and Sylvester Gray, who I was able to sit next to and call friends in Algebra and in Chemistry. I am glad that they are still fulfilling their legacy!
