Tony Waldrop was Ahead of the Curve


Though UNC-Chapel Hill’s athletic department released a new strategic plan for redefining the interaction between collegiate sports and academics Wednesday, several Carolina athletes have been ahead of their time in this regard. Tony Waldrop provides a particularly sterling example.
