Anderson has been playing on the gridiron for nine years and is becoming an elite defensive powerhouse. He began his career playing with the Timberlea Titans of the Nova Scotia Minor Football Association (NSMFA)

He has just completed his first year with Sir John A MacDonald Flames of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL).

Thus far, Anderson has picked up numerous awards including: 2011 Atom MVP Defense, 2013 Bantam MVP Defense, 2014 Fair Play Award and 2014 MVP Defense. His team play record has also been very impressive racking up six Provincial Championships over his seven year minor career.

Having earned many awards and championships, it’s his first accomplishments that he sees as the highlights in his career.

“One of my highlights would be getting my first touchdown in high school off of a fumble recovery,” says Anderson. “Also, just having my first high school team experience.”

Throughout Anderson’s playing career, he has had many influences but contributes both his on and off field, especially  his first defensive line coach.

“One person who has influenced me a lot in football would be my actual Defensive Line Coach Mark Haggett who coached me on my first spring league team, he is by far the best d-line coach I have ever met,” adds the Flames standout. “He teaches great technique and motivates you to be the best person you can on and off the field.”

“He’s always making sure you’re focused and on the right track to your goals and he has taught me to be the football player I am today.”

Anderson sticks to a strict workout routine when prepping for competition and for general improvements.

“I am currently only going to good life for my weight training which consists of four days, two days for upper body training and two days for lower body,” Anderson says. “I am also training cardio and footwork on my own and with rugby.”

There hasn’t been much recruiting for university for the, soon to be, grade 11 star.. At this point Anderson is open to all schools and doesn’t have any university visits planned, but feels this will change soon.

“I do not have any upcoming plans for visiting universities but I will be attending the Canada Cup,” says Anderson. “There, they will have a time to meet with coaches and recruits.”

Overall, Anderson likes to have fun off the field but be a force on the field.

“I am a humble guy with a good sense of humour, can always make the team laugh but when it comes down to business I will be serious,” adds the Flames standout.
