Born and raised in Arlington, Anders helped start the ultimate club as a freshman at Yorktown High School. Anders admired the intense competition and the bonds he formed with his teammates at Yorktown, an aspect of his ultimate persona that continued to grow once he joined UNC Darkside in 2016. An unfortunate loss to UNC-Wilmington in the semifinals of the College Championships upended his freshman campaign with Darkside, but Anders used that experience to fuel the work ethic he is known for today. In 2018, Anders help the team win the National Championship, tallying 7 goals and 12 assists during the tournament. The following year, Darkside finished as the national runner-up with Anders leading the team as a captain. His continued evolution as a menace on the field earned him Ultiworld’s “Offensive Player of the Year” in 2020, dominating both around the ball and in the downfield space, making his defender’s life miserable. While Anders may be the smallest body on the field, his reputation and play is far from that. Although Anders is the core of the Darkside O-line, his defensive skills are top notch, playing both lockdown defense and making huge plays to put his team in winning positions.
Anders is known for his on-field dominance in the limelight, but he has also proven a crucial part of the off-field leadership core. He has helped coach Darkside as a player for the last three years and took an assistant coaching role with the Triangle youth club team Triforce in 2019.
