Andre Young
After being named MVP at Nationals in the 2004 Youth Basketball of America
championship game, Andre Young was featured in the nationally-acclaimed sports magazine, Sports Illustrated For Kids, which may have kick started his illustrious basketball career.
Andre appeared in the Faces of the Crowd section of the magazine, and
instantaneously become a household name in Albany as Fox-31, WALB and The
Albany Herald all picked up the story.
Soon thereafter, the rising high school freshman received a letter from Deerfield
Windsor's basketball coach, Gordy Gruhl, introducing the college prep private
school to Andre and his family.
Andre attended DWS his freshman year and almost immediately began rewriting
the school's record books. After four years at Deerfield, Andre left as the school's overall scoring leader with 2,062 points. In addition, he also walked off with the following marks:
School's career assist leader with 471
School's career steals leader with 498
First in career free throw percentage at 78.09
First in career three pointer made at 199
First in career total field goals made at 780
As Andre racked up these lofty numbers on the high school hardwoods, his work on the Nike circuit is likely what caused college coaches and scouts to take notice. He was ranked a 4-star high school recruit and number 9 point guard nationally by the well-respected Scout.com website. Another high school recruit
website, Rivals.com had him ranked at number 125, regardless of position, and ESPN.com ranked him #18 among all high school point guards. This garnered the point guard D-1 offers from Clemson, Maryland, Purdue, Auburn, South Florida, Butler and Wichita State, among others.
Andre graduated from Deerfield in 2008 with a full basketball scholarship to Clemson University which plays arguably in the toughest basketball conference in the country- the ACC. While at Clemson, Andre continued to make his presence known in the record books. In four years, he earned the following accolades in Clemson's all-time record books.
Andre fini shed third in Clemson history with a 2.1 assist-to-turnover ratio - he had 342 assists and 163 turnovers during his four years with the Tigers.
He made 236 career three-point goals, fourth most in Clemson history.
He had 184 career steals, placing him seventh in the Clemson record books.
Andre was second in the ACC with a 2.36 assist-to-turnover ratio. That was also the eighth best ratio for a single season in Clemson history.
Andre played 3,489 minutes in his career, 12th most in the Clemson record books.
He finished his career with 1,223 points, which landed him at number 25 on the school's all-time scoring list.
As a Senior at Clemson and team captain, Andre was named to the All ACC Defensive Team, All -ACC Academic Team, ranked second in steals in the
ACC, second in assist-to-turnover ratio, second in minutes played, third in 3-point field goal percentage, fourth in 3-pointers made, sixth in assists and
12th in scoring in the ACC with 13.3 points per game.
During his Senior season at Clemson, Deerfield-Windsor retired the #11 basketball jersey of Andre Young.
Upon his Clemson graduation in 2012, Andre was invited to try out for two NBA teams- Golden State and Sacramento. Both the Warriors and Kings took a hard look at him before he eventually traveled overseas to play professionally in Holland (2012), Ukraine (2013), and France, where he is playing today.
