BERKELEY - Jake Anderson has been named California Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the second time in 2012-13 following his latest standout performance April 13 on Witter Rugby field against Saint Mary's College.
In the highly anticipated matchup between No. 1 Cal and No. 5 Gaels, Anderson got off to an unlucky start with his first placekicking attempt, a 30-meter penalty kick that caromed no good off both uprights, and the Bears went into halftime down 15 points.
But the Bears stormed back to win the match between two squads with unbeaten collegiate records thanks in no small part to the junior fullback, who connected on his next three penalty attempts and added four conversions, including two back-to-back from along the left touchline, to bolster the Bears' comeback in a 42-31 victory. Anderson finished with 17 points scored and Cal improved to 19-0 (5-0 PAC Rugby Conference).
Anderson's honor is the third for the team from Muscle Milk this year, with freshman Russell Webb also earning the accolade.
