When Burroughs High football players and coaches talk about Zander Anding, something that is always brought up is the dedication and hard work the senior running back puts in.
But a quip from Indians quarterback Eli Peppmuller best illustrates Anding's unrelenting drive this season.
"We actually had a team meeting and we were talking about a bunch of stuff. We were trying to figure what we can do to get better, and Zander's solution was that we need to condition more," Peppmuller said. "He already puts in a tremendous amount of work, and he wanted to work even more. He is definitely one of the hardest workers I've been around. Whatever he needs to do to get better, he'll do it."
Burroughs head Coach Keith Knoop said Anding hasn't always been as dedicated as he has been this season. In fact, in his first two years in the program, football seemed to be an afterthought for him.
