Means Joins IU Baseball Team
"We are excited to welcome Andrew to our program," Smith said. "He brings us outstanding speed, of which you can never have enough. Andrew had an exceptional high school career, and we are anxious to see everything he can do."
Means produced an impressive career at Avon Lake, collecting first team all-conference, All-Lorain County and all-district honors his junior and senior seasons. During his senior campaign, the 6-0, 200-pound speedster batted .431 with a .487 on-base percentage, a .637 slugging percentage, five home runs, 34 runs, 44 hits, 35 steals in 35 attempts, including a straight steal of home, and he committed no errors in center field.
Along with earning the four accolades in 2005, Means set the school runs, hits, singles (34), total bases (65) and steals records. He also hit a school-record nine home runs as a junior.
As a wide receiver at Avon Lake, Means led the team to a 15-0 record and the school's first state championship as a junior. During the season, he hauled in 22 catches for 411 yards and seven touchdowns.
The following season he corralled 24 receptions for 597 yards, an average of 25 yards per catch, en route to first team All-Lorain County and all-district honors. Means did not see action for the Hoosiers in 2005 as a redshirt.
