Podcast Ep. 56: Boilermakers for Life: The Anthrop Family Legacy

Anthrop Family

In this episode of “This Is Purdue,” we’re highlighting the story of the Anthrop family, a Purdue Athletics legacy from West Lafayette, Indiana.

If you’re a Purdue sports fan, you’ve probably heard the name Anthrop. Brothers Dru, Danny and Jackson Anthrop were all Boilermaker athletes, and their father, John, played both basketball and baseball for Purdue, and was on Purdue’s 1980 Final Four team.

Listen in as the family shares highlights of what it was like growing up with Purdue essentially in their backyard, traveling to away games and how they balanced academics and athletics.

Plus, hear from Jana Anthrop (also known as Mama Anthrop) on what the Purdue community and Boilermaker spirit has meant to their family throughout the years.
