Charles Andrew Toth Jr.
Basketball • Coatesville

Charles Andrew Toth Jr., was born in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. He was known to most people simply as "Andy". His family came to West Chester when he was in 9th grade.

Andy was a 6'3 basketball player who led West Chester High School (now B. Reed Henderson H.S.) to the Ches-Mont league championship in 1965 and 1966. On December 23, 1965, Andy scored 51 points (there was no 3 pt scoring then) against Downingtown. This is a Ches-Mont game record that has stood for 51 years.

After a short stint at Parsons College, he came home and played for Cheyney State College (now Cheyney University). While at Cheyney he played on two very good basketball teams, the 69-70 team and the 70-71 team. The 69-70 team lost in the regionals to Herb Magee's Textile team, the eventual national champion. The next year, Cheyney knocked out Textile and went to the final eight, but were defeated by Kentucky Wesleyan.

In 1971, Andy was drafted in the 10th round by the New York Knicks, but he did not play at the professional level. Andy played a little baseball including a short stint for Transmaterials of the West Chester adult baseball league. He was also known around Chester County and the Philadelphia region as a very skilled pool player.

Andy Toth presently resides in the Downingtown area.
