Former Pulaski Cougars player signs with NFL’s Colts

The first day of NFL rookie free agent signings allowed a Pulaski County man to join the ranks of fellow former Pulaski Cougars Jeff King, Shane Graham and Todd Grantham as a player in the NFL when it was announced that Pulaski County Cougars and University of Akron standout Brandon Anderson signed with the Indianaplis Colts earlier this week.
Anderson, a corner back at Akron, started 16 of his 48 career games played with the Zips at both corner back spots, as well as playing at rover and strong safety. This past season, he was credited with 42 tackles and led the team with 10 pass breakups. He added one interception to rank third in the Mid-American Conference and 56th in the NCAA in passes defended (0.92 per contest).
After missing the Army game due to a slight injury, Anderson closed the season getting at least one pass break up in seven of his last eight contests, including three versus Temple. In a three-game span, Anderson tallied 17 tackles, getting five each versus Bowling Green and Eastern Michigan. He added an interception in the win over Eastern Michigan. Anderson concluded the three-game stretch with a game-high seven tackles, including one for a loss, in a win over Toledo. Anderson finished his career with 108 tackles with three interceptions and 17 pass breakups.
