Andrew Crout's life journey brought him from Texas to Delaware with stops in Michigan and Maryland in between. He has been competing in Special Olympics since the mid-1980s in the sports of softball, bocce, bowling, basketball and tennis. He says that Special Olympics has enabled him to become more active and more social. He has been employed with MBNA/Bank of America for 25 years and received a "Top Performance" award in 2013. He enjoys traveling, going to sports and social events, fishing and jet-skiing. This will be Andrew's first competition outside of Delaware. "Competing at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 is my biggest award. I'm looking forward to playing against people from other countries."
