Greatness awaits Cougs’ Anderson
11th June 2008
Talented wide receiver Jeshua Anderson played in all 12 games last fall, with 12 receptions for 372 yards and two touchdowns. Impressive, even more so for an athlete who sat out of spring practice to concentrate on track.
During the indoor season, Anderson recorded WSU freshman records in the 60-meter hurdles (8.01 seconds) and the 400-meter dash (46.67).
Anderson has claimed the Pac-10 and NCAA West Regional titles in the 400m hurdles in the outdoor season. His fastest preliminary time of 49.90 seconds on Wednesday in Des Moines, Iowa, suggests an NCAA title isn’t far away.
“I don’t want this to sound like I’m arrogant, but I had high expectations of myself from the time I got (to Pullman),” Anderson said. “I set goals that I wanted to accomplish, and I’ve been working toward them.”
“The Olympics are definitely a goal of mine,” Anderson said. “I want to do everything I can to make it this year. If it doesn’t happen this year, then I’ll try the next time around. But it’s something I am working for.”
