Bobby Anderson erupted for three touchdowns in the first game he played at the University of Colorado. The initial performance effectively set the tone for three record-breaking years.
He went on to establish eighteen of the Buff’s single-game, single-season career-marks while playing two years as quarterback and one as a tailback. In 1969, his senior year, he earned All-Big Eight and First Team All-American honors.
Anderson’s astonishing combination of power and agility made him one of the best all-around football players in the history of Colorado football. Along with Byron White and Joe Romig, Anderson is one of only three players ever to have his number retired by the University.
Anderson later became the Denver Broncos Number One draft choice. His professional career included tenures with the Washington Redskins and New England Patriots.
After his playing days, Anderson returned to his beloved Colorado where he is currently a businessman in the Denver area.
