SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Making big plays comes naturally for Utah's Dres Anderson. After all, it's in his genes.
The junior who is leading the Utes receiving corps this season in several major categories is following in the footsteps of his father, former NFL receiver Flipper Anderson.
During his 10-year NFL career, Flipper Anderson had 5,357 yards and 28 touchdowns on 267 receptions while playing for the Los Angeles Rams and the Indianapolis Colts, along with stops with the Broncos and Redskins. He set a single-game NFL record for yards receiving after accumulating 336 yards on 15 receptions for the Rams in a 1989 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Dres has made a major impact of his own on the Utah offense.
