DEZMOND RODRIGUEZ: Gaining a starting position


Football is considered to be an all-American sport. Fans and families love it, but above all the athletes who take part in it might even consider it part of their life. For junior Desmond Rodriguez, playing football has become more than just a fun pastime. This season, Rodriguez has moved from being a second string quarterback to first string. He claims to have gotten the upgraded position due to one of his teammates not wanting to play quarterback anymore.

“It’s not that different,” he said. “It’s just harder now that I’m starting, and we don’t have that good of an offense.”

So far, Rodriguez is unsure of how his team will improve for the season, but he has high hopes for his own improvement within football. “I just want to see an overall improvement with everyone.”
