AMOS ANDERSON – 1997 – In the long run of Oliver Ames High School hoops excellence, Anderson is one of its most exciting players. The son of Paul Anderson, front court ace for the OA team that played in the 1967 Class C Tech Tourney finals, and older brother of twins Erica and Ryan, Amos, a shooting guard, was a 1000-point scorer and as a junior and senior a captain of OA squads that made it to the Eastern Massachusetts Div. 2 South finals. Anderson was a Boston Globe and Boston Herald All Scholastic pick. Following a year at Bridgton Academy, where he played varsity hoops, he went on to Clark University. Anderson played forward at Clark, lettered all four years, and was a team captain as a senior.
