Former Montana Grizzlies safety Colt Anderson was recently named Philadelphia Eagles' special teams MVP by his coaches and teammates.
Anderson, a product of Butte High, was recognized for his impact in kick and punt coverage. He made 12 total special teams tackles, and finished the season with 168 special teams production points in 12 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury.
"It's pretty cool to get such an honor when your coaches and teammates vote on it," Anderson said. "Any time you get recognized by the guys you work with side-by-side it's a big deal."
Last season, Anderson was named the special teams captain for the Eagles' playoff game against eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay.
An All-American at UM, Anderson was the Grizzlies' MVP in 2008 and won the Golden Helmet Award as the team's hardest hitter both 2007 and '08. He finished his career ranked fifth on the school's all-time list with 313 career tackles.
