"He had 100 caries for 573 yards and 11 touchdowns last year," said Head Coach Alan Chadwick. "He also had six catches for 165 yards and three touchdowns. We're looking at certain things just to get him the ball next year and get him some more touches next season."
Russell's older brother Brandon plays at North Carolina, but Anderson looks like he will take the path less traveled.
"I went to some North Carolina games last season to see my brother," said Russell. "My dad played at Tennessee State too. I've been getting letters from teams like Auburn, Alabama, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Furman and Kent State. Right now my Top 5 is Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, and Florida."
Russell also plays baseball in high school, but football is his ticket to the next level. An excellent student, Russell will have no trouble qualifying.
