Danny Anderson

Danny Anderson was a basketball standout for the Elkmont Red Devils. He was a three-time All-County player, a three-time All-Area player, All-Region and All-State. Anderson averaged 18.3 points per game,

10.1 rebounds per game and 5.8 assists per game as a three-year starter for Elkmont. He helped lead the Red Devils to the first county championship in school history during his senior season as EHS posted a 28-3 record and earned a spot in the state playoffs. 

Anderson’s high school coach Steve Britton said Anderson was the catalyst behind the Red Devils success. “Danny was the best all-around player I ever coached,” said Britton. “People came out to see us play because of Danny. Our home games were packed and when we played Tanner for the county championship at East Limestone, the fire marshal had to turn people away. Danny was very versatile. He could shoot the basketball and had the ability to get to the rim because he was a great ball handler. He was a great defender and good leader for us. I am proud of Danny not only for what he accomplished as a basketball player but the great man he has grown into.” 

Following his playing days at Elkmont, Anderson earned a basketball scholarship to Calhoun Community College. He helped Calhoun CC win the state championship and the Warhawks were the National Junior College Athletic Association runner-up. Anderson averaged 17 points, 10 points and three assists for Calhoun CC. He transferred to Midland Junior College in Midland, TX for his sophomore year. Anderson averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds for Midland. His final two years playing were at the University of North Alabama. He played in 45 games for the Lions while starting 39 contests. Anderson averaged nearly 13 points per game and five rebounds per game during his two-year career at UNA.
