Anderson saw action at free safety, wide receiver, punt returner, kick returner and quarterback while at Emerald. He was a three-time All-Lakeland and all-region selection and two-time coaches all-state recipient.”I had some emotional problems growing up so I used sports as an outlet to take my mind off of everything,” said Anderson. “I was basically doing anything that would keep my mind going forward and try to not to reminisce on the past too much.”Despite receiving offers from multiple schools including a few Conference-USA teams, Anderson decided to play college football at Furman where he majored in Business Administration.

He was a three-time All-Southern Conference selection after leading the team in tackles in each of his three years as a starter.”Furman has a great reputation for academics,” said Anderson.”I knew that I couldn’t bank everything on football. Getting a good degree will help me out later in life.”Since graduating, Kadarron said he has turned his focus to competing for a spot on an NFL roster, a dream he has had since before he even played organized sports.
