What made you decide you wanted to be a football player?

When I was about 5 years old, one of the youth coaches in my town saw me with my parents at our neighborhood Walgreens. He convinced my parents to put me into football because of my size at that age, ever since that day I fell in love with football, and never looked back since.

What are your favorite moments from your football life?

My favorite memorable moments of my football life would have to be receiving my first Division 1 scholarship offer, earning my first start in college, and winning 2 conference championships at Monmouth.

Which one of your family members inspires you the most and why?

My mother! She is the strongest woman I will ever know. She inspires me to better myself each and every day as a man and also as a football player.

What are your favorite things about playing football for Monmouth?

My teammates, the family environment, and the coaching staff.

If you could hang out with any football player past or present for a day who and why?

Trent Williams. I would just want to pick his brain about his game and mentality off and on the field.

What is most elite thing you do and why?

The most elite thing I do is my ability to be versatile in playing multiple positions on the offensive line.

What should we know about Greg Anderson the person?

I’m a huge people person, I love interacting with everyone I come into contact with. My personality speaks a thousand words, and anyone who knows me personally will let you know that my smile and personality can light up any room I’m in.

What is your favorite offensive scheme and why?

West Coast style offense, because this offense brings out all of my strengths as a guard on the offensive line.

How do you handle challenges both in life and on the football field?

All challenges I face whether in life or in football, and I always face head-on immediately. Facing your challenges is usually the hardest thing to do because many people will always try to find a way to avoid or get around their problems. At some point, you will have to confront your obstacles, why not just fix them once they arise?

What would a team get in a player like you?

They would be receiving an offensive lineman who has great character, a great work ethic, toughness, and intelligence to go along with his athletic abilities.

What do you love the most about the game of football?

The thing I love the most about football is that it prepares you for life in the real world. Football teaches you multiple life skills that some people might never learn until they become older. Life skills such as learning how to be disciplined, how to be a leader, How to be accountable, learning to control what you can control, and how to be selfless. All these things are what football has taught me and I could love the game for that reason alone.

Who is the most underrated player you’ve played with and why?

My center is Tyler Williams. He doesn’t get enough credit for the amount of work he puts in on and off the field. Me and Tyler came into college together and he’s definitely helped me along the way by keeping each other accountable to the goals we both set for ourselves.
