Bison linebacker never doubted his return to football

When North Dakota State's Matt Anderson lines up at his weak-side linebacker position in Saturday's  12:30 p.m. FCS playoff game against Eastern Washington at Roos Field, he will do so with an ever-growing appreciation for the sport he loves.

Anderson, a 6-foot-2, 233-pound senior, whose junior year was cut short by a neck injury, has made it all the way back to become a major contributor, once again, to the Bison defense.  And you can read the story on his comeback that appeared in Thursday morning's S-R here.

In addition, I've included this link to John Blanchette's column on EWU's senior two-time all-American J.C. (Jed Clampett?) Sherritt that ran in Wednesday's S-R.
