Executive Pastor at Impact Church
Andre was the final roster cut. Andre graduated cum laude with a business degree from Florida State University, and is six credits short of receiving his MBA. In 2000, Mr. Wadsworth bought and co-owned All Pro Imports Automotive Group with business partner, and former NFL player Bryan Myers. The All Pro Imports Automotive Group consisted of six Porsche, BMW, and Volkswagen dealerships, in the Central and Panhandle regions of Florida until he sold it in 2010. Recently, Andre has diversified his entrepreneurial pursuits by entering the rapidly evolving field of marketing and technology. Twenty years ago, baseball and cricket were the predominant sports played on St. Croix; football was not even a high school sport. Fellow Crucians Tim Duncan and Raja Bell brought basketball to the forefront, and Andre is most proud of that because of his achievements on the football field; football is now an organized sport on the island of St. Croix. Andre and his beautiful wife of twelve years, Subyn reside in Scottsdale, Arizona, with their four girls Sophia, Sarah, Selah and Sahmone. Andre and his family are active members in the community and serves as the Executive Pastor of the church he co-founded, Impact Church.
