SS PODCAST: Utah State coach Blake Anderson on trusting God, overcoming immense loss

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING BLAKE ANDERSON

Blake Anderson is the head football coach at Utah State. In his first two seasons with the Aggies, he won 17 games and led his club to back-to-back bowl games (capturing the LA Bowl in 2021). Prior to arriving at Utah State, Anderson was the head man for Arkansas State from 2014-2020.

In 2019, the Anderson family experienced tragedy as Blake’s wife, Wendy, passed away after a battle with breast cancer. Then in early 2022, one of his sons, Cason, took his own life at the age of 21.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Blake Anderson about walking faithfully through grief, how he’s able to press on in the midst of loss, and finding purpose in his pain.
