Andy spent nine seasons with the Rams. As a reliable force on the offensive line, McCollum started every game from 2000 until 2005. During his tenure with the Rams, McCollum was part of an offensive line that blocked for three NFL MVP’s and led the Rams to two Super Bowl contests.
McCollum’s success does not end on the field but can be seen off the field through his volunteer efforts. In 2006, McCollum was a finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. He served as the chair for the Rams’ Bowl-a RAM-a event to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation of Metro St. Louis. McCollum continued in his efforts to support their cause by donating tickets to each home game to the organization. He also worked with the Down Syndrome Association to host a football clinic at Russell Training Center and served as the honorary chair for the organization’s annual golf tournament.
McCollum’s commitment to service did not end there. As a Rams’ center, he was active with the offensive line’s “Linemen in Motion” community efforts. During the holiday season, McCollum, along with other members of the O-line, would serve a Thanksgiving meal to those in need. The group also visited children at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. He works with fellowship of Christian Athletes and helps coach the FCA football camp. He is a volunteer coach with the Eureka High School football team and has coached youth football with Eureka Junior Wildcat Football for several years. He also teaches Sunday school and helps with the children’s/youth program at West County Community Church.
