The Countdown 2010: 57 Days to Go

57: Peter Anderson, Center #64 (1982 – 1985)

Blocking for a great group of running backs including Herschel Walker and Tim Worley, Peter Anderson was a key member of the Georgia offense in the middle 1980’s. Originally from Vineland, New Jersey, Anderson would play every position across the offensive line during his freshman and sophomore seasons. In 1984, Anderson finally earned a starting spot at center for Coach Dooley. It was that same season that Anderson would earn a nickname few would forget.

Vince Dooley gave Peter Anderson the nickname “Bell Cow” a name symbolizing his leadership on the Georgia Bulldogs team. In his senior season in 1985, Anderson would make his mark on the entire football landscape. In Georgia’s 20-13 victory over Clemson, Anderson recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown for the Bulldogs:

Also during that 1985 season, Anderson became the first Georgia player to be named permanent team captain in the middle of the season. He was named a consensus All-American following the season and will be remembered as one of the best centers in Georgia history.
