He thanked Coaches Sig, Holden, Gobles, Gkekas, Bar, Brian Kehr and all the others for their support both on and off the field. He thanked his teammates, especially Lado, LeVand, Check, Skov, Dennett, and Jono, "for the games and memorie I’ll never forget." More thanks were given to his friends who painted their chests, and all the community and fans for supporting the team at all the games." Andrew also thanked the Dawgs Football Boosters for everything they’ve done for the program.
