WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Jackson Anthrop led Purdue in receptions in 2017.

He was second in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns for a Boilermaker team which won its first bowl game in six years.

Then Rondale Moore arrived to West Lafayette.

Moore paced Purdue in receptions in 2018. He also earned consensus All-American honors.

Meanwhile, Anthrop's role significantly decreased.

The Central Catholic graduate caught just eight passes for 54 yards. The previous season, Anthrop had 47 receptions for 423 yards and seven total touchdowns.

Anthrop saw the field less but found other areas to contribute including helping the teammate who passed him on the depth chart.

"So many nights I called him because David (Blough) was asleep," said Rondale Moore. "Or I'm lining up and we're in camp and everything's going so fast and I'm looking over like, 'What do I got?' Hats off the Jackson man because he's been very unselfish in helping me with whatever I've needed."

Head coach Jeff Brohm isn't surprised with the sacrifices Anthrop's made.

"He's a great man," said Brohm. "He's a team-player. He's got a great family. They get it and they want to win. They put the team first and you couldn't ask for a better teammate." 

Brohm is committed to getting the junior wide receiver more involved this upcoming season.

"Of all the things I do feel a little bad I didn't get him the ball enough last year," said Brohm. "I didn't get him on the field enough so we're going to make sure we utilize him more this year. We've looked at him in the slot. We've even looked at him on the outside some. We've looked at him in the backfield some so I think you may see him moved around a little bit more this year to find ways to get him on the field."

Anthrop and Purdue kickoff the new season at Nevada on August 30.
