The Naranja, FL native -- is perhaps the top running back in the country for the class of 2020. When you breakdown his game -- you noticed several things. First, his amazing vision. His ability to stay patient and wait for a lane -- and then explode through it -- makes him highly successful week in-and-out.
Standing at 5-foot-6, 165-pounds with the combination of durability, strength and speed -- makes him a man among boys every Saturday. As a 7th grader, last spring, he recorded a 4.55 hand timed 40-yard dash attending University of Miami head coach Al Golden football camp.
What stand outs about Andre' game -- that the stat sheet, doesn't display is his touchdown percentage, running between the tackles. I personally, believe Andre is ready for varsity level right now. Furthermore, 97% of his touchdowns are from the three and four lanes on offense with pulling guards unlike the typical youth football running backs -- who falls in love with off tackle and toss plays. He's gifted, well coached and is a team player.
Andre Football Resume:
Florida All-Stars Game Tryouts: Named class of 2020 "Overall MVP" and "Fastest Man Winner" (4.59/40).
FSG: Florida vs. Georgia All-Star Game - Offensive MVP

Andre, mind boggling stats this season are unreal. He was responsible for over 2,500 all-purpose yards from scrimmage. I personally, observed him score four touchdowns during the 1st round playoffs, in only the first quarter. Andre, found the end zone, an eye-popping 51 - times this season. Below is Andre's TOUCHDOWN breakdown:
38 - Rushing
4 - Receiving
4 - Pick Six
3 - KO Returns
2 - Punt Returns
On defense -- lining up at middle linebacker and defensive back. He led his team in tackles -- recording over 130 - tackles and caused 2 - fumbles and returned 4 - interceptions for touchdowns. After helping turn around his D2 program -- Tamiami Colts to a national contender. Next fall, he hopes over the next four years, he can help Miami Southwest High School football team, capture their program first playoffs victory and make history.
