Football/baseball standout Phillip Anderson has withdrawn from Thomson High School and has enrolled at Lee County High School in South Georgia, The McDuffie Mirror has learned.
The 17-year-old Anderson, a junior, just completed his first year as starting quarterback for the Thomson Bulldogs who finished with a 2-8 season. Aside from playing quarterback, he also was the team's punter.
Anderson did not play in the last two football games, because of a sprained ankle.
He had been living with his father, Billy, and recently decided to move in with his mother, Carmen. His last day of school at Thomson High was last Friday. He started classes at Lee County High School on Monday.
Before moving, Anderson had planned to begin winter baseball workouts at Thomson High this week. He helped the Bulldogs to get into the Class AAA state baseball playoffs as a sophomore pitcher and right fielder last season.
He was expected to have become one of the team's ace starting pitchers in the spring.
