This 6'5" giant hails from Brooksville, Florida where he had four years of high school varsity wrestling experience with a record of over 90 wins. The 23-year-old former football player has a mere six months of independent wrestling experience. Starting over 40 games as an offensive lineman for Florida International University, Andy holds the school's power clean record of 365 lbs. After FIU, he was a priority free agent with the Miami Dolphins and attended mini-camps, before hanging up his cleats to pursue his dream to entertain in the ring.
Andy wants to be a WWE Superstar so he can be a part of a great organization based on hard work, integrity, and respect. He currently resides in Tampa, Florida with his wife Lauren and his daughter. The family expects a new addition, a boy, in Spring 2011.
