Millard West senior shortstop Max Anderson has been named the Nebraska Gatorade Player of the Year.

Though the spring season was canceled due to COVID-19, the award still was presented based in part on last year’s statistics. Anderson, a Texas A&M signee, batted .353 as a junior and helped lead the Wildcats to their first state title.

Other criteria are academic excellence and exemplary character.
