Jeshua Anderson: 5 tips for young College Athletes

Posted on March 20th, 2014 • Peter Simmons

After a stand out high school and college career on the track, 400m hurdler Jeshua Anderson, moved to Phoenix to begin his professional career under the guidance of Dan Pfaff, Stuart McMillan and Andreas Behm.

Having won 3 NCAA titles, 4 Pac-10 titles and an National American title whilst at Washington State, Jeshua has been putting his experience to good use advising the next generation of collegiate athletes.

He reveals five top tips for young college athletes hoping to emulate his transition to professional athletics.

1. BE TEACHABLE.

As the level of competition is different. The information from your coach in the transition is even more important to listen to and soak up.

2. NUTRITION.

Your nutrition is very important. Learn about food and how to cook!

3. LEARN FROM THE BEST.

Study your event thoroughly. There are many hurdlers I look at via YouTube and try and see what they’ve done to have plenty success in the sport. Looking at every segment of their race. Taking something from greats and adding it in my arsenal.

4. AIM HIGH.

Never settle for anything. There is always things to work on to get better. Nobody is perfect. But we work hard to “perfect” our craft.

5. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!

God has blessed you with a body that is very complex and as an athlete in any sport it is important to have maintenance work done on it always. Nobody knows your body more than “YOU” do remember that.
