PASADENA — Burroughs High running back Zander Anding had to leave Friday's Pacific League opener against Pasadena in the first half. The senior was experiencing shortness of breath and was feeling light-headed.
However, after resting on the sideline in the second quarter to catch his breath, Anding went right back into the game — and back to work.
The running back probably left the Bulldogs defenders a little breathless themselves during the league opener, as he scored four touchdowns in pacing the Indians to a 49-34 victory on the road.
The win was the first of the season for Burroughs (1-3, 1-0 in league).
Anding had 29 carries for 302 yards and three rushing touchdowns of 14, 13 and nine yards. He also had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He would have racked up more yardage and more scores, but he had two touchdowns called back because of Indians penalties.
