NASHUA – He’s been known as one of the state’s better high school baseball players the last couple of springs but on Thursday Bishop Guertin High School lefty pitcher-first baseman Brett Anderson had his status taken to another level.

Anderson, a junior, was named this season’s New Hampshire Gatorade Player of the Year.

Anderson has four mound wins and 69 strikeouts in 41 innings, with an earned run average of 1.02 and 1.024 WHIP. At the plate he is hitting .458 with a homer, eight doubles, two triples and 17 RBIs, slugging .712.

“Brett has had a fantastic season,” Guertin coach Scott Painter said. “He works hard to be the best at everything he does, from his work in the classroom to his preparation in the weight room and his performance on the baseball field.

Anderson posted a comment on his twitter account in reaction to receiving the award.

“I feel blessed to be selected by Gatorade from the many great players in the state of NH. I want to thank my family, my teammates, my coaches, my friends and the many other people along the way for their support.”
