Leroy Roddy - Fans' Choice Athlete of the Week 5
PRIDE - The Northeast Vikings have been the surprise team of the Baton Rouge area so far this year.
Undefeated at 5-0, thanks to a stout defense that's holding teams under six points per game in scoring.
The leader of that defense is defensive tackle Leroy Roddy. His 4 tackles for loss and 10 total tackles, pacing the Vikings last week to a 12-7 victory over Dunham to open 6-2A district play. The performance also earning him this week's Fans' Choice Award.
The junior, who weighs in at 327 pounds, is already receiving looks from several division one schools in the SEC, ACC and Pac-12. He's one of the most dominant lineman in the area now, but it was an experience where he was dominated as a 7th grader by now LSU star offensive tackle La'el Collins, that helped shape his path to stardom.
