Professional Bowlers Association
The PBA has learned that Denver Broncos’ running back C.J. Anderson is going to compete in the PBA Planet Bowl Southwest Open in Oklahoma City this weekend.
Anderson, who made his PBA debut as a celebrity guest in the Chris Paul PBA Celebrity Invitational in Los Angeles in January, is serious about bowling and reportedly has been practicing diligently with guidance from PBA competitors, including fellow Denver area PBA member, Brett Cooper.
“My 1st PBA tourney this weekend man should be fun,” Anderson noted on his Twitter feed this week.
Regarding his chances, he also noted, "I'll do my best, I'm pretty confident. The goal is to make the cut. If I'm rolling it really well I know I have a shot. I will try to win and show the world I’m serious.”
Anderson, who is accompanying Cooper to the PBA Southwest Region event in Oklahoma City, scored a touchdown in helping the underdog Broncos win Super Bowl L, 24-10, over the heavily-favored Carolina Panthers. Among his ongoing bowling activities was hosting a “Strikes for Kids” fundraiser last weekend in Lone Tree, Colo., to provide scholarship assistance to deserving young people.
