"He's a great runner," Albano said. "He has football speed. He may not be the fastest track person, but on the football field he's hard to catch."
Anderson's defense also stepped up with its best performance of the season. Linebackers Bryant White and Zach Amos spearheaded an effort that limited the Trojans to 117 yards of total offense.
New Castle ran a read-option with quarterback Hank Neal, but by the third quarter White and Amos were routinely snuffing it out. Outside linebacker Robby Peal added a pair of interceptions — equaling the total catches of the Trojans' receivers.
"They came to play," Albano said. "I thought Bryant had a really great game. All four linebackers were outstanding. That's the best game they've played as a group this year."
Anderson returns to NCC play Friday, hosting Marion (1-5) on homecoming.
