Thiers Anderson (US’54, C’58)

Ty, as he was known to his friends, arrived at the College a standout athlete from the Upper School, where he won the Arthur T. Morey Award his senior year. That same year, he and his teammates set an Upper School football record for the longest streak of winning seasons. They held that record for 24 years until it was broken in 1978 by a team that included Ty’s sons, Mark (US’79, C’85) and Scott (US’80, C’84).

As a freshman at the College, Ty contributed to an undefeated football season, resulting in a Conference Championship. The following year, he was the team’s leading scorer, responsible for 39 of the season’s 79 points. Ty made his mark on College basketball and baseball as well, earning MVP status on both teams.

Ty won the Charles F. Buckwalter Outstanding Athlete of the Year Award twice, one of only two athletes to do so. Following graduation, he played baseball for the U.S. Navy before returning to the Upper School as assistant director of boys’ athletics. Two years later, he shifted to the College, where he coached several sports and served as assistant athletic director in the late 1960s. He then began a two-decade career in banking.
