What makes you a top prospect at your position  in the 2022 NFL Draft

Having great knowledge and understanding of the game, while checking all boxes of the physical traits at my position makes me a top RB prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. My film shows that I can run the ball well while making people miss very often. I can catch, block, and get the job done. I am very light on my feet & exceptionally shifty for my size and can earn the hard yards when there isn’t an open hole for me to run through.

At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?

I became interested in football around the age of 5. My first year playing organized football was when I was in the 5th grade. I have been playing ever since. 

What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?

Whatever it takes I’m up for the challenge for the team. I’m selfless and I’ll put it all on the line for my brothers. 

If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be? 

I would donate towards towards Child Hunger.  

What is the best advice you have ever received? 

Control what you can control. And control the heck out of it while you’re controlling it. 

Who was your childhood hero? 

My childhood hero was God mother Lillie. She kept me in great spirits and did everything in her power to make sure I had a smile on my face. Rest in Heaven to her. 

Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school? 

I would say Keyron Kinsler. He deserves way more recognition for his play and his film speaks for itself. 

What is your biggest pet peeve? 

Wasting time & beating around the bush instead of being straightforward. 

Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome? 

My team was 4-36 throughout my high school career and college coaches rarely came to the school. I wasn’t understanding how I didn’t have any offers after my JR season, but I just put my head down and continued to work. It was the Friday before spring break & we had team workouts. A teammate and I ended up being the only two people of the entire team to show up for workouts. Coach Charlie Camp of Houston Baptist at the time showed up in the weight room and was looking for me. We talked for a while then he ended up offering my first scholarship shortly after. That moment is stuck with me for life because it showed me that no matter your circumstance or situation, what you put in is what you will get out. 

Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?

Alcorn State is one of a kind. The school is filled with great people. It’s family oriented not only from a sports perspective, but throughout the school as a whole. We don’t have the best of everything but we make the most out of what we have day in and day out! It is special to me because they put me in a position to earn my degree while welcoming me with open arms to showcase my talents on the field. Nothing but respect & love for the school. 

What is your favorite snack food? 

Fruit Snacks. 

What is the best part of football? 

Best part of football to me is the great memories you make day in and day out that will last forever with your brothers whether it be things that happen while playing football or off the field memories. 

If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say? 

Stadford Anderson is a humble young man who has the tools, mindset, and work ethic to be successful. 

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be? 

My player comparison would be Joe Mixon. 

If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why? 

Elon Musk , LeBron James , and My late Grandfather.
