Anderson, a Hayes Grad, Leads On, Off Football Field at West Point

Christian Anderson took his leadership skills home to the Bronx during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 2017 Cardinal Hayes High School graduate helped at home after his parents were quarantined to their room for two weeks after they both tested positive for the coronavirus, and a strength and conditioning program helped him gain 20 pounds for his junior season as quarterback with the Army football program.

“I was really taking care of the house while they were sick,” Anderson told CNY of his parents Denise and Robert Earl, the pastor of Shekinah Glory Worship Center in Harlem. 
The Mission of Cardinal Hayes High School, a community based in Roman Catholic values, is to inspire diverse young men of the New York City metropolitan area to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We will accomplish this goal by encouraging students' spiritual and intellectual growth through a rigorous college preparatory program of academics, extra-curricular activities, and personal discipline.
