Junior Max Anae gives Dorados versatility

The rundown: Max Anae, FB/TE/MLB, 5-11 1/2, 225, Canyon del Oro, junior
• Who he is: The replacement for CDO's two-way star, Blake Martinez, who is now at Stanford. Anae called it a "big fulfillment" to take his spot and that it feels very good to be on the field doing the same things he did. He trimmed his 40-yard dash time from 4.9 seconds to 4.75. Last season, his first with the Dorados after he moved from Utah, Anae was third on the team with 19 solo tackles as an outside linebacker and was their lineman of the year.
• Proof he's good: Football runs in the family. His father, Robert, is a former BYU player and the University of Arizona's offensive line coach/running game coordinator. His brother, Famika, is a sophomore offensive lineman at BYU. CDO coach Dusty Peace said college coaches have been impressed with Anae's athleticism. The junior would like to play linebacker in college and said UA defensive coordinator/linebacker coach Jeff Casteel has shown interest in his progress.
• He said it: "He'll do everything Blake did. He can play tight end, he can play slot, he can play wideout, he can play fullback and he can play running back." - Peace on Anae
