Chris Rodgers, 2023 6’1″ 200lb LB/RB, out of Corinth picked up his first D1 offer from Southern Miss this week. The senior is a nice asset on defense and really gets after the ball.
Chris has been waiting patiently on his first offer and it finally came. “Having my first offer feels great,” said Rodgers. “I just got to stick to getting stronger and working on my fundamentals to improve my game.”
Chris definitely plays his position with a lot of heart. He plays downhill and makes very solid tackles. I like his patience at LB. He doesn’t overrun plays or miss many tackles.
I can see him being a great OLB at the next level. He has a lot of room to grow and I’m very sure he will gain a lot more weight. Look for Chris to lead the Corinth defense to some great things this year.
“I feel very confident about the team we have coming up and the new starters we have. We just need to go hard every snap of the ball and also we need to be able to last all four quarters if we want to be champs again,” said Rodgers. “I had to be a leader last year even though I wasn’t a senior, but since it’s my senior year I have to be a better leader at learning more by example.”
