Monarchs Player Spotlight: Andre Drye - Lights Out!

Feb. 24, 2010

Since Andre Drye joined the Monarchs during the second game of the 2009 IFL regular season, there's been no looking back. At 5'10", 182 lbs., he might not be the biggest player on the field, but he always has made his presence felt. Known to his teammates as "Dre", he knew as early as the seventh grade that he loved football and has been punishing opponents ever since.

 

Dre attended Aurora East High School in Aurora, IL where he played football and ran track. He excelled in football where he played outside linebacker. Dre's senior year of high school was impressive, he was second on the team in tackles with a total of 53 for the year, which was matched with 4 sacks and 2 fumble recoveries with one returned for a touchdown. With a successful senior year came the accolades, which included being voted All-conference honors, all-area honorable mention and Defensive team MVP.

 

Following high school, Dre took some time off to determine his life course, which led him to attend DuPage University where he made the transition from outside linebacker to defensive back and honed his skills. After college, he spent time in the Chicago Rush's training camp during the 2007 season, however this was cut short when his mother became ill and traveled to Milwaukee to assist her in her time of need.

 

Drye is a quick and aggressive cornerback, who hands out hits like ex-Pittsburg Steelers linebacker, Greg Lloyd. With the Monarchs, Dre made an impact in his first game of the season, shutting down his side of the field and making numerous hits on the opposing teams quarterback. Drye was voted the Shorewood Monarchs Defensive team MVP in just his first season with the team. Football to Dre is like any human eating food, it's a necessity. His passion for the game and electrifying athletic play has inspired his teammates while entertaining the Monarch faithful in the stands.

 

When not playing football, Dre spends time training with the area's top athletes at the Don Beebe's House of Speed in Brookfield, WI. Dre is cat quick and runs a 4.37 in the 40 yard dash. Speed, agility, quickness and power seem to be his specialized player attributes. Dre is currently a part of a very young and talented secondary for the Shorewood Monarchs, but it is not hard to locate him on the field along with his other heavy hitting teammates. The Monarchs say that there is a "No Fly Zone" in the Monarchs secondary, any opposing receiver willing to violate this rule will undoubtedly pay the painful price.
