Athletic Director: Matt Anderson
Athletic Director/Head Coach Matt Anderson brings a long line of basketball tradition to the CCC& TI program, as well as a love for the game. Anderson is a former West Caldwell Warrior, who was a four year varsity player and a three year starter. Anderson led the Warriors’ to a 107-12 record, three 2-A western regional appearances along with a berth in the 2-A state title game in 1999.
He was twice named Conference Player of the Year and had the distinct honor of being selected as a McDonald’s All-American nominee. Matt also attended the prestigious Nike All-American Camp as well as the Adidas ABCD Camp for the top 180 high school players in the United States. To complete Matt’s high school career, he was honored by being selected to play in the East-West All-Star game as well as the North Carolina vs South Carolina All Star game.
In 2002, Anderson graduated from West Caldwell with the accomplishment of being the Warriors career male scoring leader, totaling over 1,700 points scored. He still holds this title today. Anderson went on to play at High Point University on a scholarship but due to a ruptured disc in his back at the end of his senior year of high school, his college career was cut short.
Since then Anderson has helped out former High Point University Coach Bart Lundy, been a student assistant coach at Mars Hill College under Coach Terry Rogers, and worked as the JV head coach and varsity assistant for the West Caldwell Warriors under Coach Danny Anderson.“I know the last few years the Cobras have been really successful so my vision for this team is very big. I want to make sure we are doing it the right way, doing well in class and getting involved with the community. I want this team to be something the community can be proud of,” says Anderson.
