I coached a lot of players in my career. I don’t know if their were any players that had a bigger heart than Dre which made him special! He already had the the other attributes (athleticism, toughness ,want to) which made him a great linebacker. His big heart is what separated him from others as well as his character. He was truly a pleasure to coach and even more, just to know him was what I so much enjoyed! Bless his family and friends! Thanks Andre!🏈

This was very hard to do man.

Bro, this just seems unreal writing in a box about a guy who's always thought and lived outside of everybody he's ever seen.

You lived the BIG life b/c you were bigger than life! I observed it and had the blessing of experiencing it with you. From Bama State to Boardrooms brother.

Everyone loves and misses you. We are all so proud of the husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, friend, mentor, colleague, protector and citizen you were.

There will never be another Dre(45). You can never be replaced. Rest knowing that Tam, Mani and babygirl Autumn are in good hands and you left things in great order. Your village stands strong!!

Yesterday I drove 600 miles of our old GA stumping roads while listening to all the old music we enjoyed over the years and looking back on great fun times. Thank you for being a true friend and family.

I love you bro! #4life

Dre, you will be missed by all that loved and adored you. You were smart, energetic, witty and goal driven. Always had a positive spin on every situation and just an overall great outlook on life. Your passion for living kept us inspired and hopefully we all can grab a piece of it to remember you by. Rest on my friend you will be forever missed but never forgotten. Well done.

I met Dre at Bama State many years ago, but it seemed like yesterday. We immediately became good friends. Later on he would become my brother . Dre was genuine, full of life that would easily rub off on you. Dre you lived a good life brother, family over everything. Sending my condolences, and prayers to his wife Tammy and his daughters, Mr Dillard, and the rest of the Dillard family.. Rest easy brother. 🙏 Love you big dawg! Until we meet again my friend, my brother.

Sending Sympathy and Prayers to the Dillard Family

My heart goes out to Tammy and their children! Dre or "Big Dawg" as we called him inspired everyone he came in contact with, leaving nothing but great times and memories along the way.. He was a friend that quickly became a brother from another mother. I will forever be greatful to have known an individual as impeccable as you!

RIP Dre

Tammy, my condolences & prayers to you, your daughters, & the family. When I first transferred to The Alabama State University. I had a meeting with Coach Markham & so did Dre. We talked outside of coach office door waiting to be called in. During my conversation with coach, he gave me a option of playing RB or LB, so I chose LB he told me to get with Dillard & workout with him. Unannounced to me Dillard was Andre "Dre" Dillard who I was talking to prior to going into his office. At our first workout, who was Dre's workout partner, none other than Mak. There in Lockhart Hall inside that cage called a "weight room" started a 20+ yr friendship with those 2 guys. Dre was humble, a good friend, great teammate, just all around good guy. He will be missed by many. You're in our prayers.🙏🏿 🖤💛 RIP ASU🏈LB#45 HOUSE HOUSE

You expressed loving your family at each gathering. That love is reciprocated. Actions not words...Up early serving family, slaving over a hot grill you mastered every summer gathering in July. Perfection complimented by your mothers corn muffins! Tammy's Mac and cheese and Aunt Connie's famous baked beans. Only when you were unable to, were you not present. A smile that would light of the room, accompanied by genuine hugs, life of the party. Gone, but not forgotten much love, your pesky cousin Britt.
