Thrashing the Vikings, 98-77, in last year's Deputies Football Game was so glorious, so enthralling, that he's looking forward to crushing them again, 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 at Lokken Stadium.
Anderson became the Sheriffs' coach because he is the ultimate source of football expertise.

"This loss means that regardless of the result of our last EDC match at Shanley on Thursday, we will be the 8th seed," Hi-Liner Tennis Head Coach Matt Nielson said. "Wahpeton is the 9th seed, and will come play us in a play-in match on Monday, with the winners moving onto regionals in Fargo that Thursday (Sept. 26) and the loser's team season ending."
