Adam Heede-Andersen has signed and accepted a scholarship to play for the St. Cloud State University basketball team. Adam will begin his college career in the 2015-16 academic year.
Adam joined the Global Squad in July 2014 after a fantastic high school career with Stenhus Gymnasium in Denmark. Adam, under the tutelage of Trine Michaelsen, helped Stenhus to several Final 4 appearances and led the team in assists.
As a member of the Global Squad Adam played in 24 games for the Gold Dragons (A) team and led the team in assists (96). Adam also helped lead the Dragons to two tournament championships, including the “Born 2 Ball” event in New Jersey and “The West Chester Classic” in Pennsylvania.
Throughout his time with the Global Squad Adam showed that he is a consummate winner, a great floor general, and the type of true point guard that is rare in the modern game of basketball. These skills gained him recruiting interest from Hartford University, Kutztown University, Coastal Academy, Mt. Zion, and West Oaks Academy.
Adam decide to join West Oaks Academy for some extra development against U.S. competition. The opportunity for playing time was a tough battle at West Oaks but Adam quickly adjusted. He ended up starting the 2nd half of the season and the team finished with a 40-9 record. Once again, Adam showed he knows how to run a team and win.
St. Cloud State University entered the scene and began recruiting Adam. After just a few weeks they made an offer and the rest is history.
Chad Welk, St. Cloud’s assistant coach responded to the signing,”We’re really excited with what Adam brings to the table. He’s a great addition to the team.”
This is yet another great day for the Global Squad family as another one of our alumni has made his college basketball dreams a reality. Every player that reaches the college level did it because they have a unique level of mental toughness and work ethnic. Adam Heede-Andersen stands out even among that group of high-achievers. Adam worked his tail off and truly deserves this great moment.
Congrats, Adam! Good luck!
