Our team

Andre Murray


As a kid growing up in the inner city of Brooklyn, I used basketball as a pathway to success. Communicating and getting to the next level was a challenge with family life but with a undeniable work ethic and passion. I was able to get into college to get an education and pursue playing basketball and receiving a degree in Business Management and a minor in communication from St Johns University I was met with many challenges that led me to developing a program such as: A&M Sports Academy. Educating, teaching, and mentoring the youth on opportunities that would give them access to not only their talents, but also to achieve a bigger goal of playing basketball and using it as avenue to get an education as a I did. Basketball is a journey that takes you in many different directions. We want to teach the youth about our journey and help impact our future leaders.
