ANDY BOYS TO VANDY BOYS: Former Bulldogs greet fans at Dore Jam

Former Andalusia High School standouts Allan George, Will Clark and B.J. Anderson spent Saturday afternoon in Nashville greeting fans the Vanderbilt Commodores annual “Dore Jam.”

Vanderbilt football players spent the afternoon talking with fans and signing autographs.

During “Dore Jam”, the Commodores also showed a preview of a new uniform to go with their “Battle Ready” theme.

The gray jersey and pants with black numbers and “Anchor Down” on the side of the legs.

The helmet is steel gray with the facade of a battleship.

There are 82 rivets on the helmet to signify Turner Cockrell’s No. 82.

Cockrell was a Vanderbilt player that died from cancer in November.

Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason spoke about Cockrell during a video at the uniform unveiling.

“In order to realize the worth of the anchor, we need to feel the stress of the storm,” Mason said. “Rivets are the strength of the ship… 82 rivets for our strength and our rock Turner Cockrell, who was always battle ready.”

Former Andalusia players Anderson, Clark and George will all be vying for playing time in 2019.

George saw action last year as a redshirt freshman and enters the season as the No. 3 cornerback on the Commodores roster.

As a redshirt freshman, George played in 12 games and started three.

He has 33 total tackles, 25 solo tackles, one forced fumble and one interception.

His best games came in wins over Middle Tennessee and Ole Miss where he totaled five solo tackles in both games.

Anderson and Clark didn’t see any action last year, but also didn’t redshirt.

They are both true sophomores entering the year.
