Fred Brondsted and Adam Heede-Andersen will be taking their talents to West Oaks Academy in Orlando, Florida for the 2014-15 academic year. Fred and Adam are both high school graduates of Stenhus Gymnasium in Denmark. They also just completed an impressive summer with the Global Squad as members of the Gold Dragons (A) team.
Fred spent two seasons with the Global Squad. His 6’7 size, defensive ability, and impressive shooting touch earned the attention of many D-I and D-II college coaches. Unfortunately only one school, Holy Names University, pulled the trigger and made a scholarship offer. This prompted Fred to look at prep school as an option and West Oaks Academy came into the picture. West Oaks needed a lights out shooter who could defend. Fred fit the bill and he made the decision to call Florida his temporary home.
This past season was Adam’s only season with the Dragons and he quickly made a huge impact. His command of the point, high basketball IQ, and fantastic passing ability got the attention of several schools, including Hartford University. West Oaks Academy took an interest in Adam following a game vs Philly Pride. Adam matched up with Chris Clover, a top D-I recruit from Philly. Adam gave Clover everything he could handle. Philly Pride won the game in the final minutes, but Adam made his mark, proving he has D-I potential.
This move to West Oaks Academy is a great opportunity for Fred and Adam. West Oaks has a reputation for sending their alumni to D-I schools. We expect Fred and Adam to have several very exciting offers following a full year of training with and competing against U.S. competition. We’ll be sure to update the Global Squad community every step of the way.
Fred finished his Global Squad career with impressive all-time stats. He ranks 4th in points (373), 3rd in rebounds (204), 9th in assists (73), 7th in 3-pointers made (38), 2nd in free-throw percentage (80%), and 1st in free-throws made in a season (57).
Adam had the 3rd highest assist total for a single Global Squad season (96). He also set the record of assists in a single game after dishing out 12 assists vs Philly Vipers. Adam’s career stats ranks 3rd in assists per game (4.0), 3rd in assists to turnover ratio (1.8), and 6th in free-throw percentage (74%).
