Duke Waldrop, son of Hays and Peggy Waldrop, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a junior at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the Varsity Golf Team. This season, he qualified for the Junior Cup team and had a summer low score of 69.
He started playing golf after suffering concussions from several other sports. He said that when the doctor recommended trying a non-contact sport, he decided to pick up golf.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “I get inspired by the idea of being able to earn a college scholarship.”
After graduating from BGA next year, he plans to further his golf career in college. He would also like to pursue a career in criminal law.
