ARCADIA — There was no surprise about who was going to be called upon to carry the workload for the Burroughs High football team Friday in the cross-town rivalry game against Burbank.
Zander Anding has been the Indians' go-to player all season, as the senior running back has broken records, put up gaudy numbers and put together his share of impressive performances.
But the Bulldogs might not have expected to get Anding shoved down their throats.
Burroughs came out in the wildcat offense with Anding running the show. The end result was another 300-plus rushing game for the senior, as he helped lead the Indians to a 34-7 victory at Arcadia High.
The win clinched a share of Burroughs' third straight Pacific League championship. For the second year in a row, the Indians (6-4, 6-1 in league) are co-league champions with Arcadia (8-2, 6-1), who defeated Crescenta Valley, 31-7, Friday.
