After a standout performance in Waldorf's Week 2 game at St. Ambrose, Warrior senior defensive back MaCoy Yeakel was named North Star Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Yeakel, a graduate of West Hancock, finished the game with two interceptions and a fumble recovery during the Warriors' 24-17 victory at St. Ambrose.
His first interception came in the first quarter, when he snagged the ball and returned it for 59 yards to set up a touchdown. Then, he recovered a fumble later in the game, which led to a field goal to extend Waldorf's lead to 24-17.
With 44 seconds left in the game, Yeakel grabbed his second interception of the contest to seal the victory.
The Warriors are 2-0 for the first time since 2014 to start the season. Waldorf has a bye this week and will travel to play at Valley City State University on Sept. 18.
