Despite playing on a tender a leg, Tinley Park wide receiver Eldridge Anderson refused to come out of the game in the Titans' 44-27 homecoming victory over Evergreen Park on Friday night.
Eldridge hooked up with quarterback Kyle Sheridan four times for 59 yards and a touchdown. He had an incredible grab (see the video) on a third-and-long that helped seal the game for the Titans. A few plays later, Sheridan hit Eldridge in the end zone for 17 yards and a touchdown.
Anderson made the grab over several Evergreen Park defenders. For his efforts, he is recognized today as the Patch Athlete of the Week for Tinley Park.
The Titans (4-0) travel to Lemont Friday for a matchup with the undefeated Indians. Anderson is one of the biggest weapons on a high-powered Tinley Park offense that will look to solve Lemont's stingy defense.
