Sean Anderson graduated from Victor J Andrew High School, in Tinley Park. Sean worked with Jeff at THROW IT DEEP for two years in high school when it was just starting up. With minimal pure athleticism in high school, Jeff was able to hone Sean’s technique and make him a fundamentally sound QB.
Throughout his senior year in high school, Sean began looking at a few D1AA and DIII schools to attend and play football at. After graduation, Sean decided to go to the University of Illinois for purely academic purposes. Upon arrival in Champaign-Urbana he immediately found out when walk-on tryouts were. Sean trained at school and with Jeff on breaks, the entire year until the Spring of 2008 when tryouts were held. After the tryouts, Sean and three others, out of a group of 40, were asked to come out for Spring ball.
During the Spring ball Sean earned a spot on a very good University of Illinois team who had just made a Rose Bowl appearance the previous season. Sean remained member of the Illinois team till his graduation in 2012. During his tenure at the University Sean backed up record setting quarterback Isaiah “Juice” Williams and Nathan Scheelhaase. Sean went to two bowls, The Texas Bowl and The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Both victories marked the first time the University of Illinois won back to back bowl games in schools history.
Through continuous hard work and dedication he eventually earned a scholarship at the end of his career. He will be the first to tell you that it was one of the hardest experiences of his life, but also one of the most rewarding.
None of his success would have been possible without the work he put in at Throw It Deep and the continuous encouragement from Coach Christensen.
Sean currently teaches at Batavia HS. He is the current Offensive Coordinator for Batavia Bulldogs Varsity Football Team which won the 2017 IHSA State Championship . At his high school, he continues to apply the same technique and work ethic that THROW IT DEEP demands from its athletes.
