Anderson started off by honoring his friend Nippy Mangrum with a moment of silence. Anderson attended the funeral of his friend last month in Paragould."It's kind of bittersweet from the standpoint every time I come to Paragould Nippy is kind of the guy that greets me off the plane or drive in and so not seeing him here to me is kind of sad. But on the bright side of it I come out here and all his friends and his family are here. It's a month ago from today that I was here for his service. But I know he's a tremendous asset to his community. And this community continues to support his family, but what a true, true Razorback fan but more importantly what a true, true friend," Anderson said.
