Coach Anton Anderson is currently going into his 4th season as Running backs coach at Fleming Island High School. In his first three seasons the run game was a big part of a great offense for Fleming Island’s winning seasons and contributed highly in an offense that has improved the last two seasons (2017: 11-3/2018: 6-4/2019: 11-1). Chauncey Garrison, Anfernee McCaskill, Dwayne McBride, Azzie Ramirez, and currently, Timmy Thomas and Sam Singleton have all had great success in what has been a solid Fleming Island offense.
Prior to moving back home to Florida, Anton Anderson coached five seasons at Mayville State University during the universities most successful and competitive years in the schools history. He started his coaching career coaching Linebacker position that was a key part of a nationally ranked defense. He also coached defensive backs and Running backs in his time at Mayville State. He also helped run the off season training program for his team and his coaching position.
While at Mayville State he coached four 1st team All conference players on defensive side of the ball, two 1st team and one 2nd team All Conference players on offense. During his time coaching the Running back position the offense had one of the best rushing seasons in the universities history, with Running backs Homer Reed, Jerrill Jenkins (schools all-time leading rusher) and Dondrei Hubbard having great success in helping the offense be the best in schools history as well.
As a student/athlete Anton Anderson played on both sides of the ball for three years before succumbing to a Senior season, and career ending injury. So with his minor in coaching, as well as a bachelors degree in University Studies, he started his coaching career soon after.
In high school Anton Anderson attended Gaither High School in the Tampa, FL. area. He graduated as a 4 year letterman and was awarded “Best Physique” by his high school class.
