Anderson looked at a few other schools such as Bemidji, St. Scholastica, and Morris before deciding on Dakota Wesleyan.

Anderson spoke highly of the staff at Wesleyan, stating the atmosphere and the coaches were among his reasons for attending.

At Braham, Anderson has been a four-year varsity letter winner. According to Head Coach Shawn Kuhnke, Anderson was “a staple on the offensive line, and great on the defensive side of the ball.”

Kuhnke cited his athleticism and nose for the game when stating what makes Anderson a special player.

Expecting to play linebacker at the next level, Anderson finished last season with 27.5 total tackles, two and a half sacks, and eight tackles for a loss on defense. Anderson has proven he can be a force on the defensive side of the ball.

Anderson is a three-sport athlete for the Bombers, participating in football, wrestling, and baseball.
