The star Bulldogs rusher put up some big video game numbers and most of the time, he was running behind #57 in Travis Cedotal. At 6’3, 285 pounds, Cedotal commanded the line of scrimmage for the Bulldogs whether it was his run blocking or pass protection. Mentioned earlier was his ability to clear the path for one of the best running backs in the state, but he also provided a clean pocket for longtime quarterback Bryce Leonard after he set passing records for the Bulldogs throughout his career.
