Bo's Ready

This Texas State commit was the 14th to pledge back in the fall. He is also one of four linebackers in this class. Our staff was able to catch up with him recently.

Bo Anderson just wrapped up his senior season in one of the tougher 6-A districts in the state. He didn't have the season he would have wanted as his team was only able to make it to the first round of the playoffs. That's where Coppell lost to Desoto 51-3.

“We had a pretty tough district, playing Desoto, Trinity, and South Lake Carroll. The team didn't do as good as expected, defense didn't do well. We didn't come together and play as a unit,” said Anderson.

Despite the team's struggles, Anderson had a pretty good season individually. He played the first 8 games of the season before tearing his hamstring. Bo averaged 13 tackles a game and he ended the season with 101 total tackles, 56 solo tackles, 2 fumble recoveries, and 4 TFL’s.

“I led the district in tackles till I tore my hamstring. I had close to 100 tackles before the Desoto game. I was also AP Honorable Mention All-State. If I didn't injure my leg I believe I would have made first team” said Anderson.

Bo took his official visit to Texas State this past weekend and enjoyed every minute of the process.

“It was sweet, people were down to earth and real chill. The coaches are awesome too, there is a real nice comradely between them,” said Anderson.

Signing day is coming up and Anderson couldn’t be more ready to officially become a Bobcat as he has officially stopped the recruiting process.

“There isn't any schools I’m interested in, I basically shut it down. Kansas State and SMU has tried to reach out to me recently since they (SMU) have a new coaching staff. I'm happy with Texas State, I'm happy to play where I'm wanted," said Anderson.

Anderson had plans to enroll early in the spring at Texas State but wasn't able too due to class issues. He will miss the first summer session of classes because he won't graduate till June, but he still plans to work hard and make a impact right away when he comes to fall camp.

“I plan on working real hard, I can't come until till fall but I do not plan on red-shirting. I need to learn plays quick, I’m pretty smart and a quick learner. I feel like I can compete right away with anybody in this conference,” said Anderson.
