College & Pro Football Lineman Judge Bain Goes for Re-Election
Orlando, Florida- Miami Hurricane and NY Giants lineman Judge Andrew Bain has joined the exclusive roster of the WSA World Sports Alumni. Judge Bain seeks re-election to continue serving Orange County in Florida.
"Bain was one of the most honest and genuine guys on my team back at the U. 15 years later nothing has changed. He is still that guy", says 2-Time Pro Bowl Brandon Meriweather his fellow Hurricanes teammate.
"Andrew Bain is not only a man of integrity who never takes a short-cut to success, but he's also one of the down to earth people to be around", said Charlie Williams CEO of the WSA.
A pro athlete must be voted in by fellow pro athletes of at least 3 sports. Bain was unanimously voted into the World Sports Alumni.
Orange County Voting ends at 7:00pm.
Judge Bain’s life has always been about service to his faith, his family, and his community. In addition to serving on the bench, he is married to Dr. Andrea Singh, and together they have two beautiful daughters, Alana (6) and Amayah (4). He is also a professor at Florida A&M College of Law, serves as a mentor to students at all levels, and serves on the elder board at his church. Judge Bain is committed to being faithful and fair, and to ensuring that all are treated equally under the law.
Judge Bain grew up in Lauderdale Lakes, FL, right outside Fort Lauderdale. Being a pastor’s son meant weekly Sunday services and church meetings in his home. At one point or another, Judge Bain served in every capacity at the church, from leading worship, to cutting grass, to serving as a handyman, and even scrubbing toilets. This experience taught him some very valuable lessons about being committed to faith, love, and humility.
As a child, he spent most of his free time playing sports. His first love was baseball, before moving on to basketball and football over the years. But when it came time to focus on one of the three, Judge Bain chose football. In his final year of high school, he was a team captain, All-American, laundry worker for his teammates who did not have a washing machine at home, while he helped lead his football team to win the 5A State Championship in Tallahassee. He also headed an award-winning peer tutoring program for his fellow classmates.
In college, Judge Bain joined the University of Miami Hurricanes football team, becoming their master of the “pancake block” as an offensive lineman. When he wasn’t on the field, he dove headfirst into his studies and mentoring at-risk youth. He majored in Psychology and African-American studies and minored in Business Law. It was in college that Judge Bain’s interest in the field of law continued to grow.
After his graduation, Judge Bain pursued his love of football by signing to the New York Giants as a free agent. Although he loved the game, he knew he wanted to go to law school eventually. And after some prayer, thought, and deliberation with his new wife, he knew law school was his calling. He graduated from Florida A&M University in 2013 and joined the State Attorney’s office not long after.
Although Judge Bain enjoyed his time as a prosecutor and the experience that he gained, the opportunity to serve on the bench was something that he could not turn down. It was a conversation while volunteering as a county court mediator with the late Donna Dorer, our Court Mediation Program Coordinator for Osceola County, that solidified his plans. She told him she knew he would become a judge someday, and right she was. In 2020, Judge Bain was appointed to the Orange County bench, becoming the only African American male judge serving on the county bench, and the first since Judge Reginald Whitehead was appointed in 1994.
