Andersen (5-11, 208) is a Denmark native who has most recently kicked for the Berlin Rebels of the German Football League (GFL), the highest-level American football league in Germany. Andersen has worked as a kicker and punter in Europe since 2012, spending time with the Amager Demons, Herlev Rebels and Søllerød Gold Diggers of the Danish American Football Federation (DAFF), as well as the Berlin Eagles of the GFL.
