As a junior, Cody Anderson had 49 tackles, four sacks, four forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries. On offense, he caught six passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Anderson was named first team all-region on defense. He was also a first team all-state selection in basketball. "I am not the strongest player but I will not be beat by the competition," he says. "It does not matter how good they are. I play the game with a lot of heart."

He is a two-way star for Apache Junction so schools see him at different positions. "Of the schools that have offered me, I know Wyoming likes me as an offensive tackle and Colorado State likes me as a tight end. I have played at offensive tackle, tight end, defensive tackle, and defensive end, so I can play any position. I kind of prefer defensive end, but I will play wherever I am needed."

Anderson plays center on the basketball team at Apache Junction. He also plays for the Arizona Stars club team. "I might be recruited in basketball. I have always been an Arizona fan in basketball so it would be great to play for them. I am a big Lute Olson fan. I wouldn't mind playing football there, but I would love to play basketball there."

The U of A is one of the seven schools he is currently interested in. "I like Washington State, Washington, Arizona, Arizona State, Wyoming, Colorado, and Colorado State."

He carries a 3.15 core GPA and would like to major in Physical Therapy. Anderson is re-taking the SAT on August 6th.
