Andre, age 15, is one of the youngest racers currently competing on the Red River Racing team. Andre doesn't let anything stand in his way. He is a super ball of energy and armed with a one of 2008 Olympian Pablo McCandless’ boats he is bound to go crazy!! He put on an amazing race at this year’s Junior Olympics, placing 23 out of all 35 Junior kayaks at just 13! Andre placed first in his class at the Springs Fest Qualifier and challenged the men's class to a close race. Andre is one of the most helpful paddlers always looking out for his other team members, even if he teases them relentlessly when on land.  He loves to paddle every type of boat! His other hobbies are kayak polo, swimming, chess, golf, and hunting.
