BY LIZA STROUT - Andrew Cavallaro does not remember a time before he lived in the Sunshine State.
“We moved here in 1992,” he said. “I was two, so I don’t really have any memories of anything else.”
Anything else was Derby, Conn., where Andy was born. His grandparents were snowbirds, but they eventually made the decision to settle in Florida full time.
“My dad moved us down here so that we would be closer to them,” said Andrew.
He grew up in Englewood, and eventually Andrew began school in Englewood. In seventh grade, he discovered what would become a passion in his life: football.
“I played for four years in high school,” said Andrew. “All four years I was a defensive tackle, and in my senior year I also played offense as a tackle.”
