Newswire: Incoming Coug WR aims for record

ONE OF THE FASTEST members of Bill Doba's incoming recruiting class finds himself in the national spotlight this weekend after posting a blistering time Friday in the 300 meter hurdles during qualifying at the California state track and field championships. Despite windy weather, Jeshua Anderson was .02 seconds off the U.S. record and now has his sights set on breaking it this weekend.

"While most athletes came in hoping to spend just enough energy to qualify, Jeshua Anderson came to break records Friday," wrote Ivan Orozco of the L.A. Daily News.

Anderson, from Taft High in Woodland Hills, turned in a time of 35.34 seconds in the 300 meter hurdles Friday to set a state-meet record.

On the football field last fall, Anderson set a single-game area and City Section record with six touchdown receptions, and a school record with 304 yards receiving in one non-conference victory. For the year, he racked up more than 1,000 yards with 10 TDs on 40 receptions, plus another 129 yards and TD on 12 carries.

Here's a link to the L.A. Daily News' feature story on him this morning:
