“Don’t let a bad situation taint the image of a great place!! #BrashearHighSchool #Pittsburgh #Bestdays”

Former Morgantown High star Tyler Anderson, who has excelled on special teams, is expected to see a lot more time at linebacker now that Jared Barber is out for the season with an ACL injury that will require surgery.
“I feel I have been through this plenty of times. I’m ready to step up,” he said.
He is expected to share time with Jewone Snow.
“It happened to me as a freshman. I’m just used to it. No nerves or anything,” he said. “You can’t look at it as pressure. We just have to come out and worry about Kansas.”
Anderson says the change in playing status won’t even change his approach to the game.
“Truthfully for me, it doesn’t change,” he said. “I always prepare the same, watch the same film. I know what everyone else knows. Me and Nick and Jared always talk, we know we have to step up and play.”
