Brandon Anderson - 2003 Football

 

´╗┐Brandon Anderson is the youngest inductee in the short history of the Wayland Athletic Hall of Fame. He is being inducted in the first year of his eligibility.

Anderson was an outstanding football, track and baseball performer for the Warriors. In football, Anderson was a rare four-year varsity starter for Wayland. After earning All-Dual County League honors as a cornerback his junior year,
Anderson put together a standout senior year that included rushing for 1,734 yards, a mark that eclipsed the single-season record of the esteemed Bob Peck, whose record had stood for 30 years. The fleet-footed halfback accounted for better than 2000 all-purpose yards as a senior.

In indoor track, Anderson was the league champion in the 300 meters with a personal best timing of 36.6. He was also a member of a Class D winning 4x100 relay team.

Anderson closed out a fantastic high school baseball career by batting .500 and earning three saves as a relief pitcher his senior year. Coming out of high school, he was drafted in the 41st round by the Colorado Rockies.

Anderson played college baseball at Gloucester County College and then Georgia College and State University. He just completed his first full year as a right fielder with the Kalamazoo Kings of the Frontier League, an independent minor league baseball league.

Anderson is grateful for the help he received from high school coaches Scott Parseghian, Tom Hermanowski, Bill Snow, and Bill Fulginite.
