At 6-4 and 170 pounds, Landus Anderson is among the best high school basketball players in the state of Florida.
In his senior season, he’s averaged 19 points and eight rebounds a game—all without the use of his right arm or hand that are withered as a result of Erb’s Palsy, a birth injury.
“He gets the ball off the rim and is out and gone, running past people down the floor,” marvels his coach, Florida High’s Al Blizzard. “You’re not going to stop him in the open court, I don’t care what level you’re on.”
