FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Robby Anderson remembers leaning over his birthday cake, closing his eyes and making a wish.More than anything, the wide receiver just wanted to play football again. So, he blew out the candles on May 9, 2015, celebrated his 22nd birthday and hoped for good news.I knew football would never be over, said Anderson, who made a strong claim for a roster spot on the Jets with six catches for 131 yards and a touchdown in New Yorks 22-18 loss to Washington last Friday night.I never gave up on it.It wasnt easy, though.After a standout season as a redshirt sophomore at Temple University with 44 catches for 791 yards and nine touchdowns, Anderson was ruled academically ineligible. He was forced to sit out a year and needed to get his grades up, but until then, football was out.It was just a lack of me applying myself, he said. I was young. I was immature. I wasnt really too into school at the time and I really made some mistakes. I paid for those mistakes.Born in Teaneck, New Jersey, and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Anderson has had NFL dreams for as far back as he can remember, and they seemed to be a possibility as he starred as a receiver and defensive back for Plantation High School in Florida.After redshirting as a freshman at Temple, Anderson played in six games in 2012, mostly on special teams. He was working with the second-team defense as a cornerback in 2013, but quit in the spring. Anderson reconsidered his decision and asked Temple coach Matt Rhule if he could come back.Rhule allowed Anderson to return -- as a non-scholarship athlete and as a wide receiver. Anderson thrived, working his way to the starting offense by the fifth game. He went on to have a big year, but then got hit with the ruling that he was academically ineligible for the 2014 season and his football career was suddenly uncertain.Those thoughts went through my mind, but I have always believed in God and I knew that he delivers, no matter what, Anderson said. Sometimes it doesn't happen exactly when you want, but every lesson is a blessing. I knew that I had to be patient and I had to overcome it and go through some things and earn it back.Anderson took summer classes and earned his associate degree, applying himself in the classroom while waiting to hear about his athletic future. He did so well, hes just six classes away from getting his degree in criminal justice.Im almost there, he said with a big smile.Two days after Anderson made that birthday wish, Rhule called him to let him know that he would be eligible to play again for the football team.It was a relief, Anderson said, shaking his head. It was a blessing that I was able to go back and put myself in this position.He was a force for the Owls, finishing with 70 catches for 939 yards -- both ranking second on the schools single-season list -- and seven touchdown catches.Anderson, selected to play in the East-West Shrine Game, went undrafted in April, but the Jets signed him as a free agent shortly after the draft was completed. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver has been solid throughout the offseason and training camp, impressing with his speed and ability to get up in the air to snatch passes.Hes just got soft hands, he brings everything in, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. Hes got a good, little swagger to him that I hadnt really seen that you see in games come out a little bit. And hes raw. He just hasn't played a lot of receiver.Anderson is making up for lost time, though. He looked every bit a seasoned wide receiver when he outleaped a defender along the sideline, then scooted out of a would-be tackle for a 42-yard touchdown against the Redskins.He showed up and made some catches, said coach Todd Bowles, who also played at Temple. But again, its everything that he has to do, whether he runs the right route, depth and everything else is what we have to look at.Trying to make the roster will be a tough task with three spots at the positon set with Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa. Veterans Kenbrell Thompkins, Jeremy Ross and Kyle Williams are competing with Anderson and fellow impressive rookies Jalin Marshall, Charone Peake and Chandler Worthy for three, maybe four spots.After all the twists and turns to get to this point, though, Anderson is intent on sticking around.I just hope that throughout my NFL career, and hopefully I have a long NFL career, that people can look at my journey and just be inspired by it, he said.Sometimes you go through things, you make mistakes and things don't work out the way you want them to. If you have a dream, though, you just can't ever give up on it because you really can control your destiny if you work hard and do what it takes. You can't ever give up.You can really lose it all, but you can get it back.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Mavericks Jerseys . Hey!"

VIENNA -- Top-seeded Andy Murray advanced to his 12th semifinal of the season by defeating John Isner of the United States 6-1, 6-3 at the Erste Bank Open on Friday.Murray, who won the event in 2014, will play defending champion David Ferrer for a place in Sundays final. Another former champion, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, will take on eighth-seeded Ivo Karlovic in the other semifinal.Murray beat Ferrer for the title two years ago, and also defeated the Spaniard in the semifinal on his way to winning to the title at Beijing three weeks ago.The second-ranked Scot conceded just one point on serve in the opening set. Usually relying on his big serve, Isner hit only three aces and won less than half of the points in his own games in the first set.Isner had treatment for blisters in his right hand early in the second set, got three break points on Murrays serve at 3-1, but failed to threaten the Scots dominating win.(Isners injury) obviously helped me as from the back of the court he wasnt really generating much power with his forehand, said Murray, who improved to 7-0 against the 27th-ranked American.I was then able to dictate most points from the back of the court. I think I returned pretty good, though. It was important to put him under a bit of pressure especially from the beginning of the match.Ferrer held off a match point and won the last four games to beat Serbias Viktor Troicki 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.The 119th-ranked Spaniard and Troicki had one service break each as they shared the first two sets.dddddddddddd Troicki missed a match point on Ferrers serve at 5-3 in the third and didn't win another game. He saved three match points for Ferrer at 6-5 before the Spaniard converted his fourth chance with a forehand winner.There were a lot of rallies. It was a good match, said Ferrer, who complained about muscle cramps in his left leg. Viktor played some very good tennis in the first two sets. On the important points I was a bit more aggressive and lucky.Ferrer has played at least one final in each of the past 11 seasons, but has yet to reach one this year.Earlier, Tsonga defeated Albert Ramos-Vinolas of Spain 6-2, 7-6 (5) for his third semifinal appearance of the season. The 15th-ranked Frenchman lost the previous two, in Auckland and Monte Carlo.Sixth-seeded Tsonga, who won the event in 2011, failed to score a point while serving at 5-1 but broke again to close out the first set, and converted his third match point in the second-set tiebreaker.The 21st-ranked Karlovic used one of his 29 aces to save a match point before beating Karen Khachanov of Russia 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5), 6-3.Karlovic, who won titles in Newport and Los Cabos, advanced to his sixth semifinal of the season.
