Athlete of the Week: Wando's Andrew Glover

Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) – One family, one school, and three kids in three different sports. And now it's possible all three could be playing at Division I.

Wando Warrior greatness runs in the family for the Glovers, as does Division I talent.

First there's Christina, a Gatorade Player of the Year, the top honor in the state, who also played four years as a Gamecock.

Then there was Alex, a tight end for The Citadel.

And now there's Andrew who is fitting like a glove in the family cycle, hoping to become the third Glover in a third sport to earn a Division I scholarship.

"It all reflects on my parents. They've been pushing us since day one. I love them to death. They're the reason we're so good-so blessed to do what we do," he said.

"He's one of those kids involved at school. Everybody likes him. He's very involved, the leader of the Chop House in football season, and that support carries over to basketball," said Wando head coach David Eaton.

With all he brings to Wando, Andrew Glover still might not be the most popular Glover at the school. He's not yet a hall of famer.

"Every day I see her and I yell her name from across the hallway. I'm probably 100 yards away. I always run up to her and give her a big hug," Andrew Glover said of his mom.

She's in the school's hall of fame as a coach with 792 wins and counting.

"It's great. If I ever need anything signed, or money, or need food, she's right there for me. She's my number one fan," he said.

But Division I is the number of Andrew. The pressure is mounting for him to follow in his siblings' footsteps. As time runs out on his own high school career, he's eyeing those schools.

"I'd like to play D1. I'm playing the waiting game right now. I can't tell you any schools, because there aren't any right now," Andrew Glover said. "We've had a really good season so far. A really good season as a team. Hopefully someone will recognize that and come calling."

His coach agrees.

"He can get his shot off whenever he wants. He has the work ethic to play college basketball somewhere and he will," said Eaton.

And Glover is definitely Athlete of the Week material.
