Basketball Player, 1970-72
Randy Anderson was a force in the lane for the SC4 basketball team.
At 6-foot-8, Anderson dominated the boards, blocked shots and scored as the Skippers enjoyed back-to-back winning seasons in the early 1970s.
“Randy was a good one,” said Robert “Sam” Kromer, the former Skippers basketball coach. “During his four-year career here at SC4 and at Akron, he averaged 24 wins and two losses a season.
“He could definitely rebound and play great defense. Randy wanted to shoot outside more, but I kept telling him to get the ball inside. He was a very coachable young man.”
The Port Huron High grad helped lead the Skippers to a 30-2 record and a Michigan Community College Athletic Association championship during the 1970-71 season. He scored 687 points and averaged 10.7 rebounds in two years at SC4.
Following his career with the Skippers, Anderson transferred to the University of Akron where he was honored as the outstanding defensive player as a senior in 1975.
Anderson taught and coached in the Port Huron Area School District before retiring eight years ago.
