STILLWATER — “I had only had a couple days of practice, so trying to go out there and run it takes time to put together a good race,” Anderson said. “I kind of new that coming into it, but now I’m excited to get back out there again and get a feel for it and try to help the team out.”
Anderson was actually a three-sport athlete for Wichita Falls High School, playing basketball along with football and running track. But he has no plans of joining Travis Ford’s 15th-ranked OSU men’s basketball team any time soon.
“I left basketball back in high school. That was the only sport I didn’t want to continue in,” Anderson said. “It’s always fun to go to the recreation center and play a pickup game or two. But as for basketball, I’ll just keep as something to do in free time.”
For now, he’ll just continue working with the track team and take part in Oklahoma State’s football pro day in mid-March — with the aspirations of impressing an NFL team into drafting or signing him.
“I’m doing dual training right now — doing my football workouts first and then running in the afternoon,” Anderson said. “I’m still planning on competing out there and showing off what I can do at our pro day on March 12. If it doesn’t work out, then I’ll just continue running track; and if it does work out, that’s the route I’ll end up taking.”
