Andrew Gray has been a great example/mentor to me. He’s had to sacrifice a lot in order to reach where he is today. Along that journey he has gained a bunch of information which he kindly passes down to help the future generation excel. Andrew has helped me a lot, especially with the mental aspect of things in football and in life, which is 90% of the battle. He constantly reminds me to never give up on my dreams, little things like that are priceless!
