The Randolph College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our WildCat of the Week. The second student-athlete selected for the year is men's soccer player Brian Anderson.
Anderson returned to the WildCats during the weekend after missing the first two games of the season. The midfielder made an immediate impact in that first game against North Carolina Wesleyan College, scoring a goal in the fifth-minute. It proved to be the winner. Anderson also helped in the tie against Methodist, which helped the team seal the NCWC Fall Classic Title.
