Anderson is not only a star athlete but a stellar student at Oconomowoc High School and a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program. He has shown a strong work ethic in both areas for pretty much his entire life. I’m so happy to see that dedication paying off for him!


I’ve known Anderson’s family since we moved to Oconomowoc 12+years ago and have had the privilege of watching him grow up, and grow he did! Last I heard he was 6’8!” This is one tall family. The perspective in the family portrait doesn’t do it justice. They are all so tall!


Anderson will continue his baseball career and studies at Notre Dame this fall. I’d say that’s a perfect fit for a serious student who’s got game. Congratulations Anderson! I’m thrilled for you!

Enjoy the “best part of high school” (read on to see what he thinks that is)!
