Andre’s Way: A Decorated Journey of Basketball, Family and Pain
Wilton sat down with Andre Stringer, a person who truly does not need an introduction. But, for those who don’t know him, you will want to know more after this episode.
Stringer was a standout basketball player in Jackson, in the state of Mississippi and in the world. A former Mr. Basketball of Mississippi, two-time Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year and LSU Point guard, Stringer is a Jackson and Mississippi legend on the hardwood.
But, as he mentions in today’s episode, basketball did not make him who he was. It is simply a part of his life and the man he has become.
The 5 foot, 10-inch point guard lost his father this year and now finds himself overseeing his father’s lawn business, coaching as well as preparing to own a trucking business.
However, between basketball and the lessons it taught him plus his relationship with his father, it continues to shape the man Stringer is becoming.
Sit back and get ready to listen as he discusses how his father and brother gave him his passion for basketball, fond memories of being a high school star at Forest Hill, heated rivalries with his friends at other schools, the transition to LSU, playing against players like Lakers’ Anthony Davis and Wizards’ Bradley Beal in college, his respect for Monta Ellis, setbacks from injury and more.
