Butte native Colt Anderson was the feature of a story on CBS Philly.
The story, headlined “Colt Anderson Keeps Defying The Odds,” mentions Butte and focuses on Anderson’s rise from a walk-on player at the University of Montana to starting at safety for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The story includes the following quote by Eagles special teams coach Bobby April about Anderson, who signed with the Eagles off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad in 2010:
“He can just play. He’s under appreciated. When we got him, he signed on Tuesday and he played for us on Sunday. I guarantee you there’s nothing I did on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday to elevate him from being a practice squad player to watching him as being one of the best special teams players in the league. We were smart enough to get him. I think Colt always had that, he just needed an opportunity.”
