Name: Arie Anderson Jr

Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Making a bowl game, also making a tremendous impact, being disrupted upfront, stopping the run, getting to the QB, and becoming their worst nightmare.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Aggressive, Dominant, and Quick.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
I will train back in Idaho with one of the best strength and conditioning coaches, Scharnhorst!
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I look at the formation to see where the Running Back is at and see if the Center slides away or to the Running Back. I also look for any tips. I look at the guy I’m going up against to see how he comes off ball and his footwork.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
My determination and passion for the game! I have been tough, giving effort, and always having a nose for the ball. I am always willing to go the extra mile.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
Vocal leader, hard worker, willing to help others, and letting my plays do the rest.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I’m dedicated to the game because of the love I have for it, 100% team players, very disciplining, hungry to make plays, and I will not be denied.
