Andre McCarter

Andre McCarter has a history in athletics. He’s a former member of the UCLA 1975 championship  basketball team and was coached by the legendary John Wooden. He also played in the NBA for the Kansas City Kings and Washington Bullets. But McCarter’s patented an invention called Touch Glove put him on the map. The Touch Glove is a training glove that lessens the athlete’s sense of touch in certain areas of his hand (“no touch areas”), thereby training the athlete to control the ball with his finger tips. He received the patent for his invention in April 2000.
