How'd he get to the Blue™?
By making smart decisions and choosing us over Nevada (le puke). Seriously though, Tercek is not only able bodied, but able minded as well, if that’s a thing. Not only was he a 4 year letter earner at East Central, he hit the 1700 mark on his SAT. If I’m not mistaken, that’s pretty good. He was listed as a 3-star recruit by 247Sports, Rivals and Scout, and received offers from the aforementioned Wolfpack along with Army, North Texas, and Rice.
Because he’s Tercek’ed himself, but never wrecked himself. He only does that to other people.
Coincidentally, he’s also no one to* ahem *...’mess’ with.
...with that grin it was either this version of The Joker or the Cheshire Cat.
A four-year letter winner at East Central, Andrew mostly played LT until moving to C his senior year. He earned first-team all-district his junior and senior years and named honorable mention all-state. He was named honorable mentioned all-district his freshman and sophomore years. He played in 5 games last year as a reserve.
With the departure of Marcus Henry, there is a gap to be filled with the center position. However, as we’ve previously detailed, it’s likely that Mason Hampton will be filling that role. For the 2016 season, it presently appears as though the guard positions will be retained by last year’s incumbents, and with the center position, again likely filled, Tercek is probably going to provide valuable depth this season. He is a very talented player, and barring an injury to a starter, could see a spot open up as a senior, once Averill and Baggett move on.
Is he on Twitter?
Not that I was able to find.
Completely made up fact
Andrew actually chose his jersey number to honor the great Ray Lewis, whom he is convinced is actually his long lost cousin on his mother’s side.
