George Andrew has just signed with Grand Canyon University, an NCAA Division I College located in Phoenix, Arizona.
George grew up in Gisborne on the east coast of the North Island with his Mother Belinda, Father Peter, and Sister Ella. George attended Gisborne High School for the first three years. However, his last two years were not as common to the typical student. When George was in the second to last year in High School, he approached Saint Kentigern College Head Soccer Coach Chris Zoricich. Chris watched George compete and decided to bring him into his elite team. Saint Kentigern is regarded as one of the best High School soccer teams in New Zealand.
George started his college campaign in August 2018. This university competes in the Western Athletic Conference. George will be playing Centre Back for the team and will be competing against top colleges along the west coast.
Grand Canyon University was not previously in Division 1, however, with the new appointment of a president and a great structure put in place, the school has grown with over 75,000 online students and around 20,000 students on campus. Also last year they have announced they are releasing 10 new athletic facilities.
We look forward to watching compete this upcoming season! Go Thunders!
