Erie Times-News Breakout Boys Basketball Player of the Week: Carl Anderson, Mercyhurst Prep

Carl Anderson

Senior Carl Anderson was one of the stabilizers of the Mercyhurst Prep boys basketball program.

After two coaches were fired in less than one year and first-year coach Sean Baer taking over right before Anderson’s sophomore season, the talented leader helped regroup the program, which led to 56 wins over the past three years.

Anderson, a 6-foot 2-inch forward, averaged 12.5 points per game this year and helped Mercyhurst pick up another PIAA playoff win over District 9 champion Brockway. The Lakers’ program is back playing at a high level each season and Anderson will leave Mercyhurst in the spring as one of the seasons why.
