C.J. Anderson would not be denied.
The same goes for the Denver Broncos.
With 3:13 left in the fourth quarter, Denver needed to get in the end zone to ice the Super Bowl over the Carolina Panthers.
Anderson gave the Broncos just that, as he bullied past tacklers for a two-yard touchdown run that clinched the 24-10 win.
Anderson, the Bethel High graduate and former Times-Herald Male Athlete of the Year, finished with 90 yards on 23 carries in his second Super Bowl in his three seasons in the NFL.
Locally, this game was all about Anderson but nationally was also about the legendary career of Peyton Manning.
