Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey to Richard Bolden and Angelika Gessner, Shot Master Andrew Bolden, found his love for basketball at a very early age. In 2004, he and his family moved down south to Webb, Alabama where Andrew attended Webb Elementary School. Being that he was previously homeschooled, Andrew faced the challenges of not only learning in a public school environment and being disallowed the leisure to play basketball during the day, but the cultural differences between the northern and southern regions of America. After building relationships, growing accustomed to the traditional southern values, and becoming a basketball player for the Lakers city league team, Andrew was able to maintain focus on his academic achievements. In his first year playing for the Lakers, Andrew led his team to win the City League Championship. Throughout most of his high school basketball career at Houston County High School, Andrew receive much recognition. From 9th through 12th grade, he was a starter on the varsity team as well as played for the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). In just 15 seconds and first shot of his senior year, Andrew broke the AHSAA state record for 3-pointers since 2003 with 427 shots. Andrew finished the season breaking not only the state record, but also the national record with 535 3-pointers during his career at Houston County High School. He was offered scholarships at the University of South Alabama, Spring Hill College, University of Huntsville, and more. With many choices, Andrew made the decision to attend his freshman year of college on a full scholarship to Shelton State Community College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and transferred to Enterprise State Community College on a full scholarship for his sophomore year. Andrew’s passion for basketball has led him to train young athletes to perfect their skill. His key shooting strategies and focuses are body placement and awareness, release point, controlling the ball, repetition=consistency, learn your shot, and gain a shooters touch. He hopes to provide athletes the skills and fundamentals needed to make their PERFECT shot.
