With no shortage of bruising ballcarriers coming out of Burroughs High over the years, it's no small feat to go down as the most prolific running back in Indians history.
But that's exactly what Zander Anding did during his epic 2011 senior season, in which he rushed for 2,686 yards in 204 carries and scored 30 total touchdowns, more than enough to put him over the top for the all-time school lead in career rushing yards (3,345) and points scored (250).
"Even with all the great ones we've had, he was just so special compared to all of them," says Burroughs Coach Keith Knoop, who has seen Anding's most recent predecessors Joe Wiggan, Dominique Barnes and Tadeo Zuniga set a standard of excellence for running backs in the program. "He was just such a well-rounded guy in terms of what he could do. He could break tackles, outrun guys, he could catch, he could play defense, he could do a lot of things."
