It's not common that a brother and sister play Division I sports at the same university, and both of their parents playing there as well, doesn't happen too often. For Nevada baseball junior, Ryan Anderson, he's that last member of his family to do just that, keeping his talents at Peccole Park.

The Spanish Springs standout pitched 134.2 innings with a 2.10 ERA during his three years on varsity, posting 181 strikeouts and walked 43 batters during his career with the Cougars, while earning the Reno-Gazette Journal Northern Nevada Pitcher of the Year and was named to the first-team all-state list as a senior.

Anderson found his way into a starting role this season, after appearing in 36 games and pitching nearly 55 innings combined his freshman and sophomore year with the Wolf Pack. Anderson has more than 100 strikeouts to his name during his time at Nevada so far, but the journey is far from over.

Nevada Sports Net's Shannon Kelly caught up with Anderson in the video above.
