Pro and college sports today are
riddled with the spectacular but
unreliable-the quarterback who
throws for 400 yards one week but
throws four interceptions the next,
and the defensive back who ac-
cumulates interceptions yet gets bur-
ned deep too often.
Then there's John Anderson.
He does not often beat a team
single-handedly, but then, he doesn't
try to. It's just not his style.
A 1978 graduate of Michigan, An-
derson now plays outside linebacker
for the Green Bay Packers. He shares
the team lead in tackles with fellow
linebacker Randy Scott at 47 - a
number that won't put him in the
national TV and newspaper spotlight,

shortened 1982 season), but haven't
done much since then," said Ander-
son. "I still want to go on to a Super
Bowl before I finish my career. Up
here you're not remembered for in-
dividual honors, but for what your
team does."
Indeed, Anderson should know just
what Packer fans expect and remem-
ber, having grown up in Waukesha,
Wis., just west of Milwaukee. He
played and lettered in football,
basketball, and tennis in high school.
My best sport was football," he
said. "But my favorite was basket-
ball. There isn't much market for a 6-3
power forward, though, so that

decision was made for me."
ANDERSON came to Michigan as a
tight end, punter, and placekicker. He
immediately became the Wolverine's
regular punter, averaging 38.5 yards
on 41 punts as a freshman. After being
switched to outside linebacker the
following spring, Anderson made 27
tackles, and recorded a 38.1 yard pun-
ting average. In his junior year, he
moved into a starting role at
linebacker and finished his career
with 120 tackles, 70 assists, and a 39.4
yard punting average. He earned All-
Big Ten status his junior and senior
years, and was an academic All-
American as a junior and an All-
American as a senior.
The teams Anderson played with at
Michigan went 38-7-2, tied for three
Big Ten titles, visited the Rose Bowl
twice and the Orange Bowl once, and
never finished out of the top ten in the
polls.
"Michigan is a classy organization,"
he said. "You work hard, put in your
time, but you are treated well. I was
fortunate to have played there. I went
through wondering sometimes if the
effort was worth it, but I was rewar-
ded with success."
After graduating with a 3.1 grade
point average from the school of
Natural Resources, Anderson was
drafted 22nd overall by the Packers in
the 1978 NFL draft and since then has
started 80 of the 87 games he's played.
His career has been interrupted by in-
juries, but he's been a consistent con-
tributor. The Packers began to keep
defensive statistics in 1981 and since
then Anderson has compiled seasons of
150, 84 (during the strike season), 146,
