LAST WEEK: In the Thoroughbreds' 45-20 win against Strom Thurmond, Anderson was a huge two-way threat. On defense, Anderson recorded 14 tackles and recovered a Rebels fumble. As the squad's tight end, he caught a 3-yard touchdown pass with 18 seconds left in the first half, putting the contest out of reach.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "His biggest thing is that he's a great leader. He works hard at being a pretty good football player. You can't keep him out of the weight room." - South Aiken coach Dan Pippin
