FBU Defensive Back Coach Eddie Anderson brings his NFL experience to the FBU Faculty for the first time in 2013. He was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the sixth round of the 1986 NFL Draft. Before being drafted, Eddie played college football at Fort Valley State, where he was voted his Conferences Defensive Player of the Year Award. Over his 4 year career at Fort Valley State, Anderson amassed a whopping 26 interceptions.
Anderson played Strong Safety and Free Safety for both the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders during his 12 year NFL career. Coach Anderson holds the all-time record for longest interception return for a touchdown in Raiders history (102 yards). That same pick 6 is still the record for longest interception returned for touchdown in Monday Night Football history.
