Quarterback for the Orlando Apollos, Kevin Anderson, is one of the most talented quarterbacks on the roster. Anderson can sling the ball deep and has excellent accuracy. He is also a great team leader, something he showcased during his time at Fordham University.
He has looked great for the Apollos in camp. He is a very athletic quarterback that can break for runs when needed. Scrambling in the pocket and making throws is something he looks good doing. He knows how to lead an offense successfully, can sling the ball downfield, or can take off and run when needed.
In college, Anderson initially went to Marshall but then transferred to Fordham after his freshman year. Once at Fordham, he went on to do great things, Earning All-Patriot League honors in 2016 and Fordham offensive player of the year honors. In 2015 he led the Patriot League with 32 touchdowns! In his time at Fordham, he went on to break the school record for passing touchdowns, throwing 73!
Anderson also participated in The Spring League alongside fellow Apollos’ quarterback Austin Appleby. The Spring League is essentially a showcase for players to show their skills to scouts and teams.
On the field, you can expect high energy from Kevin Anderson while always striving to be the best. He is a tremendously great team leader, always making sure to pick his guys up if needed, and making sure everyone is doing good. Anderson brings a great passion and love for the game. He excels at being a leader, which he showcased at Fordham as well.
Mostly, I would say Kevin Anderson is one of the most underrated, and talented quarterbacks in the league. He has a great arm, great leadership, and is someone who can learn the playbook well.
In coach Spurriers offense in Orlando, the quarterbacks will have the ability to check out of a play, rather than looking to the coach on the sideline, like most colleges do. In this style of offense, he can definitely showcase all his abilities and take aim on the competition.
