HENRY COUNTY HEAD COACH JAMES COUNCE
"Since I arrived prior to Andrew's junior season, he has provided great leadership for our team. Of course, he's an excellent student, but he's one of those guys that is very conscious of improving himself while making his teammates better.
"He is a tall, physical lineman who really finishes blocks. Andrew's also worked to improve his line skills such as footwork and agility from the get-go.
"Once Andrew starts focusing only on football, he is going to add weight and strength. When that happens, the sky is the limit."
