Anders is Making Waves

The 5'8" 160 pound RB is lightning quick and makes opponents look as if they're on roller skates when trying to defend him. Although he has yet to receive an offer, it's just a matter of time.

In last Friday's 84-7 drubbing of Arlington Heights, Aledo's Jess Anders ran like a man possessed. Even though he stands just 5'8" and 160 pounds, Anders runs with authority and possesses blazing speed. HornedFrogBlitz was on hand to witness the beat down and caught up with Anders after the game.

"We went out there tonight and we knew from the beginning it probably wasn't going to be one of our best games but we went out and made a statement" said Anders.

Leading 49-0 at halftime, Anders and the other starters stayed in long enough to log another TD on the first drive of the 3rd quarter. The talented runner took a seat after Aledo extended the lead to 56-0 and watched the young guys get valuable game experience.

Coming into the game, Arlington Heights players had a few things to say on Twitter and according to some Aledo players, kept talking trash the whole game. Anders says that they just ignored it because they learned their lesson last year on how to handle teams like that.

"We don't really get worked up with stuff like that" he said. "We did a little last year but we learned our lesson and we've grown up since then."

"We let our play do the talking."

With an offense that scored at will all night long, Anders was quick to point out the offensive line as the catalysts of it all.

"Right now I have to say the offensive line is the strongest part of our team" he said. "I would not have thought coming into the season that our o-line would be as strong as they are, being as young as they are, but they've come out this year and done work."

"They do what they have to do and we have a lot of speed on our offense, we can't seem to find any negatives with our team right now but we have to keep working."

As far as recruiting goes, Anders has yet to garner an offer but with continued play like he's demonstrated in 2013, it's just a matter of time. He talked about the recruiting process starting out slow for him.

"The recruiting process is working really slow right now" said the play-making runner."I haven't received much notice from schools yet so I'm just trying to go out here and do what I have to do and hopefully some schools see me."

"Being that my dad played at TCU, I've always been a big fan of TCU" he said. "I'd love to go to TCU but of course with my running style, I like the Oregon Ducks; my dream would be to play for the USC Trojans even though that's a long shot."

Who will be the first to come forward with an offer for Anders? It shouldn't take too many more games for word to begin to spread about the diminutive back. Stay logged on to for the latest.
