Andy was a starter for three years in both varsity basketball and baseball from 1970-1973. His size, strength, and athletic ability as a forward on the basketball team helped lead the Blue Devils to a Livingston County title in 1971. This team finished with a record of 17-4 and went to the sectional finals only to fall by two points in a very tough four overtime game.
As a junior in 1972, he again was a force to be reckoned with as he averaged 14 points and 14 rebounds per game. His performance in basketball as a senior was certainly one of the best in school history. In this season, he led the entire Livingston County league in scoring at 19.32 points per game, and also continued to average 14 rebounds per game. He set the tone early that season with a huge game in the season opener with a 30-point, 20-rebound win over Cal-Mum. He also ended the regular season in a big way with a 31-point effort including a 20 foot jump shot at the buzzer to win the game 59-57 against Livonia. His clutch free throw shooting helped lead the Blue Devils to a four-point victory over Elba in sectionals in 1973 as he made 17 of 18 attempts. His efforts this season led him to be named to the All-Greater Rochester Honorable Mention Basketball team.
In baseball, he was one of the toughest pitchers in the league who helped lead Mount Morris to two Livingston County titles in 1971 and 1973. As only a sophomore in 1971, he pitched in six games. His biggest performance was a complete game one-hitter, with seven strikeouts in a win against Geneseo. This was the first of numerous complete game victories in his career. Like basketball, he started off his senior year by setting the tone early. As the starting pitcher in the first five games of the season, he compiled a record of 4-0 including a complete game three-hitter in a 2-1 win over York. He culminated his high school baseball career by leading the 1973 team to a record of 9-2 and a trip to the sectional finals.
After this impressive high school career, he was recruited by many universities before accepting an athletic scholarship to Elmira College where he became a two-sport athlete in both tennis and basketball. Impressively, he once scored 30 points for Elmira in a game against Oneonta College. As an adult, he continued to do amazing things including completing the Marine Corps marathon in Washington D.C. in 1996 at the age of 41 with a time of 4 hours and 11 minutes. He graduated from Mount Morris in 1973 and went on to graduate from Colgate University.
