Delco Football Coaches Week 3 MVPs: Ridley’s Anderson awarded for versatility

HAVERFORD >> Rare are the games in which one player makes a dramatic impact in all three facets: offense, defense and special teams.

Then again, Brock Anderson is no ordinary player.

The Ridley senior was a jack of all trades in leading his team to a thrilling 28-20 victory over Garnet Valley in a crucial early-season Central League showdown Friday night. Anderson eclipsed 100 yards rushing, made several tackles and recorded an interception in the secondary, and averaged nearly 40 yards per punt.

Not surprising, Anderson’s yeoman’s work earned him Central League MVP honors at Monday night’s weekly meeting of the Delaware County Coaches Association at Barnaby’s of Havertown.

The Del Val League named Interboro’s Chris Thomas its MVP. The senior rushed for 96 yards and three touchdowns as the undefeated Bucs claimed their second straight shutout with a 36-0 pasting of Neumann-Goretti.

Sun Valley’s Charlie Wendling garnered the Independents MVP selection for his stellar effort at running back in the Vanguards’ 32-22 win over Upper Merion. Wendling rushed for 146 yards and three touchdowns as the Vanguards improved to 3-0 on the season.
