Daniel House talks with Utah wide receiver Dres Anderson, about life, family, and his love for the game of football.
The sun rises on Riverside, California and Dres Anderson knows that he is going to work harder than anyone at his position. He distinctly remembers a knee injury that ended his senior season at Utah. Anderson wasn’t going to let an injury stand in the way of his dream. It just added more fuel to a fire that is already blazing. It doesn’t matter if he is working on route running, strength training, or speed work, Dres Anderson is going to perform the extra repetitions needed to take his game to the next level.
Dres has always had a love for sports since he was a young child. He has played baseball, basketball, and track for most of his life. He loved all of those sports, but his dad, Willie ‘Flipper’ Anderson and uncle, Paco Craig, played a major role in his love for the game of football. Flipper played 10 seasons in the NFL (Rams, Colts, Redskins, Broncos) and was a Super Bowl champion. He holds the record for the most receiving yards (336) in a single-game and was successful during his stint in the NFL.
