Handling new duties on offense while turning in an outstanding performance on defense was no problem for Dora’s Ronald Waldrop in the Bulldogs’ 37-6 win over Hanceville.
Waldrop, who moved from tight end to center on offense, was unstoppable on defense, recording 10 tackles, including five tackles for a loss, four quarterback sacks, forcing a fumble and adding a pass deflection to be named the WJLX 101.5/DME Prepzone Player of the Week.
With the win, the Bulldogs are 3-0 for the first time since the 2012 season.
