Robert Cason Anderson
Mental Health and Wellness Fund

Robert Anderson

In memory of Robert Cason Anderson, the son of USU Head Football Coach, Blake Anderson, Utah State Athletics has established the Robert Cason Anderson Mental Health and Wellness Fund. The fund will provide enhancements to the USU Athletic Department’s mental health and wellness resources. Through these enhancements, Utah State will provide increased mental health and wellness counseling services, educational opportunities, training and programing for student-athletes, coaches and support staff. Continuing to develop USU’s mental health and wellness program through the Robert Cason Anderson Fund will help increase awareness and tackle the stigma surrounding mental health challenges, while offering greater support to Aggie student-athletes.

Robert Cason Anderson tragically passed away on February 28, 2022 at the age of 21. Cason was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on November 7, 2000, to Blake and Wendy Anderson. He was a 2020 graduate of Jonesboro High School in Arkansas. Cason lived in many places throughout his father’s coaching career, but always considered Hubbard, Texas to be his home. He moved to Pflugerville, Texas in 2021 to be near his family and work for his uncle at Techline Pipe. Cason had a passion for welding that started in high school and continued at the Tulsa Welding Academy where he became a licensed welder. He loved all things outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and working with his hands. He had an amazing smile that would light up a room, a quick wit and sense of humor that always guaranteed a laugh, and never missed an opportunity to hug your neck and tell you how much he loved you. He will be missed fiercely.
