BERKELEY - Jake Anderson, who scored six tries, four of them in the final, to help the Golden Bears win the Buckeye 7s Invitational Friday-Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, is the Muscle Milk California Student-Athlete of the Week.
A junior fullback from Tiburon and 2012 7s All-American, Anderson notched a try against Note Dame and Navy on Friday night, then piled four more tries on the Midshipmen Saturday morning in the final of the Buckeye 7s. His play helped the Bears get their fall seven-a-side schedule off to a 4-0 start.
Rugby 7s is the version of the sport going back into the Olympics at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, 92 years after Cal players helped USA win gold in 1924 at the Paris Ganes. The U.S. was also the gold-medal winner at the 1920 Summer Games in Antwerp with a team that included Bears.
