Anderson was the first head trainer for the Raiders and served in that role from 1960-94. He developed a knee brace to help quarterback Ken Stabler play after injuring his MCL that eventually was called the Anderson Knee Stabilizer.

General manager Reggie McKenzie, a former player for the Raiders, said he always knew he was in excellent hands with Anderson as his trainer.

Anderson was inducted into the National Athletic Trainers' Association Hall of Fame in 1986.
