At what age did you start playing your sport? What drew you to the game? At a very young age I would always be playing volleyball alongside my family whenever we would go out camping or have big family get-togethers. I had saw how good my brothers were at the sport, so I decided to give it a try.
What is your fondest memory of your sport? Just being able to play the sport while creating strong lasting relationships along the way.
Any pre or post-game rituals that you would be willing to share? How do you prepare? During any home game, I hit up the local wok box and get a tasty ginger beef.
What are your future goals? Growing up I had always wanted to play USports Volleyball and eventually become a full time firefighter afterwards, and I still have this goal in mind.
From Head Coach, Sam Tu’ivai:
What does this player bring to the dynamics of the team? Andrew is quiet and very grateful for the opportunity to be play volleyball and play with his teammate. His understanding of his role in the match has improved drastically. This allows him to be consistent on the court. He’s consistency through setting our attackers, serving from the baseline, and defending the ball have allowed the team to be one step closer to the team’s goals. Andrew is looking to improve more for himself and for the team as we move on to the league matches during second semester.
