Virginia Beach, Va. - Former University at Albany defensive tackle Trevor Anderson was chosen in the United Football League Draft by the Virginia Destroyers on Monday, May 2. Anderson was taken in the fifth round as the 25th overall selection.

General Manager and Head Coach Marty Schottenheimer contacted Anderson personally to inform him the team had drafted him. Schottenheimer, who is in his first year with the UFL franchise, was previously the head coach with four National Football League teams, including Cleveland, Kansas City, Washington and San Diego. He also once served as the New York Giants' defensive coordinator.

Anderson, a native of Warnersville, N.Y. and a Cobleskill-Richmondville High School graduate, earned first-team All-Northeast Conference recognition on two occasions. He accounted for 45 tackles and had two sacks and three pass break-ups as a senior in leading UAlbany to its fifth consecutive winning campaign. The 6-foot-2, 295-pound defensive lineman participated in the Division I FCS Senior Scout Bowl.

As a collegian, Anderson earned four varsity letters and played on the school's 2008 Gridiron Classic and NEC championship team. He totaled 146 tackles, 10.5 sacks and 20.5 tackles for a loss during his career.

The United Football League Draft was conducted over 10 rounds and had 52 players selected. The UFL season begins in September and runs through the end of November.
