Kodiak boys roar into basketball season
During David Anderson’s tenure as Kodiak’s boys basketball coach he has been known to turn back the clock a few decades.

Kodiak High School’s new girls basketball coach did have a few restless nights a couple weeks back. “I felt like I had so much to tell them (players) and I would just wake up, grab my phone, jot down all these notes and go back to sleep.
