L.C. Bird seniors Mykael “Mykey” Anderson (CB/WR 5’10 160lbs) and Demarcus Dancey (OL/DL 6’3 270lbs) will be teammates for another four years, as both Skyhawks signed their National Letters of Intent to play football at UVA-Wise. “It was the best situation for me academically and on the football field for me as well,” stated Anderson when asked about his commitment.
Dancey stated, “Same as what Mykey said. Academics most important…It’s a good place for football. Coach Taylor talked to me all about it, he went there, so I think it’s a great fit for both of us.”
Anderson was a jack of all trades for the Skyhawks on both sides of the ball this season.
Offensively, he contributed over 500 All-Purpose yards and four touchdowns. On defense, he recorded 32 total tackles to go along with his four interceptions and blocked field goal. Dancey was an anchor to Birds offensive line unit that paved the way for Tre Mason, Ramon Brown, and Jayden Payoute. Bird finished the season with over 3300 yards rushing on 521 carries (6.4ypc). Demarcus also had the opportunity to contribute on the defensive side of the ball, recording 17 total tackles.
L.C. Bird finished the 2018 season 9-3, losing in the Division 5 Region B Semi-Finals to Henrico High School.
