Safety | Vanderbilt
Ladler, a junior from Stone Mountain, Ga., produced two of Vanderbilt's five forced turnovers in a 38-24 win over NC State in the Music City Bowl on New Year's Eve. In the first half, Ladler intercepted Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon's pass at the NC State 45. Later, Ladler scooped up a fumble and returned it 22 yards to the NC State 27 to set up the Commodores' second touchdown. Ladler finished with 10 tackles, helping Vanderbilt finish a season with nine victories for the first time since 1915.
