Mississippi State WR Caleb Ducking celebrates opening TD with appropriately-themed dance
Mississippi State wide receiver Caleb Ducking has been watching a lot of Jaylen Waddle highlights.
Ducking hauled in a touchdown to put the Bulldogs on the board against Texas A&M Saturday, celebrating with a waddle to honor his waddle-themed name.
“Cue the duck!”

It was Jaylen Waddle, the former Alabama receiver and current Miami Dolphins standout, who made the dance popular for similar reasons to Ducking. For what it’s worth, Ducking says he’s been doing the dance before Waddle made it popular.

And Mississippi State has a lot of reasons to celebrate right now. The Bulldogs are up big on the No. 17 team in the country, posting a first-half shutout against Texas A&M.
Mississippi State is looking to improve to 4-1 on the season, but there’s a long way to go.
