Presentations were made by state senator Brian Birdwell, state representative Jim Keffer, Hood County judge Andy Rash, and Granbury mayor Rickie Pratt.  Representing the University Interscholastic League was Sam Tipton, executive director of the Texas Girls Coaches Association.  Certificates and letters were also presented on behalf of Governor Rick Perry and congressman-elect Bill Flores.


Congratulatory remarks were also made by school board president Dr. Barbara Herrington, superintendent Ron Mayfield, and GHS principal Jeremy Ross.


Also taking the stage were current and former basketball players from Andrews’ coaching days in Tolar, Gustine, Comanche, Corpus Christi Calallen, and Granbury.  This included the coach’s three daughters – Linda, Sissy, and Lisa.
