NHSCA Announces Gilmour Academy’s Andrew Bieber as
October GTM Sportswear Athlete of the Month


The National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) and GTM Sportswear® announced today that Gilmour Academy senior golfer Andrew Bieber player is the GTM Sportswear Athlete of the Month for October 2012. A press conference will be held Thursday, November 15, 2012 at Gilmour Academy to honor Andrew’s accomplishment.

In October, Bieber won his second straight Ohio’s defending Division III state golf championship. Bieber, who has verbally committed to play his college golf at Duke University, shot 144 over two rounds at NorthStar Golf Resort in the state championship, which was a record for the NorthStar course.

After winning the championship, Bieber told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "It’s interesting trying to defend a title. Instead of trying to defend it, I decided to try to put myself on the offense. I had to attack it as another tournament. The challenge with this course is that the greens are so difficult. You have to be in the exact right place and it’s hard to shoot extremely well." 

“The National High School Coaches Association is proud to recognize Andrew for his outstanding performances, not only on the golf course, but in the school and community as well,” said Bobby Ferraro, Jr., Executive Director of the National High School Coaches Association. “It’s truly an honor to recognize an athlete of this stature.”

"GTM Sportswear is honored to be partnering with the NHSCA in recognizing outstanding student athletes such as Andrew. He has really shown her commitment and dedication to his sport and is a great example for the youth in our communities," said Nikki Miller, Vice President of Marketing for GTM Sportswear. "We are very proud of him and his outstanding achievements."


NHSCA and GTM Sportswear honor one deserving high school athlete each month from September 2012 through April 2013. NHSCA coaches nominate commendable athletes through the NHSCA website. Each month, six finalists are selected by the NHSCA and presented via ballot to a group of high school sports writers, high school coaches, NHSCA and GTM Sportswear representatives to choose the winner. Out of the eight recipients of the monthly award, one athlete is chosen as the GTM Sportswear Athlete of the Year in May 2013.
