As Glendale High football Coach Alan Eberhart sees it, senior two-way starter Linden Anderson is an example of what he wants all his football players to be, plain and simple.
"He's the perfect example of what I want my football players to be," Eberhart confirms.
It's quite a compliment to say the least.
Yet, Anderson hasn't set any school records, he hasn't led the Nitros to Pacific League stardom and he's yet to garner All-CIF accolades. He certainly has palpable potential to become a star for the Nitros, but Eberhart's example of what he wants his players to be is clearly removed from headlines and statistical superiority.
With Anderson, he boasts a student-athlete who does well in the classroom and does well in juggling both basketball and football. What he has is a boy scout — literally. In fact, Anderson is working on becoming an Eagle Scout.
