2014: Listed as the starter at right offensive guard on the preseason depth chart. Because of his versatility, he is moving from a tackle position he played as a junior in 2013.

2013: Played in 10 games -- four of them as the starter at right offensive tackle. He started EWU’s first two games, including EWU’s thrilling 49-46 season-opening victory over 25th-ranked Oregon State (8/31/13). A knee injury suffered versus Western Oregon (9/7/13) forced him to miss five games, but he returned and eventually took back over his starting position in the final two games of the season. He helped Eastern set Big Sky and school records with 592 points, 83 touchdowns and 8,002 yards of offense in the 2013 season. As a team, EWU led FCS in passing efficiency (school record 182.6), and fourth in total offense (533.5 per game), fourth in passing (349.8), 41st in rushing (183.7) and seventh in scoring (39.5). Eastern’s offensive line was selected as the FCS Offensive Line of the Week by Beyond Sports Network twice during the season. The first time came when EWU had 625 yards of offense in a 49-46 upset of 25th-ranked Oregon State (8/31/13) to open the season. The second time came in a 55-34 win at Idaho State (11/2/13) when the Eagles finished with a school record 743 yards of offense. He attended EWU for the first time in fall 2013 after transferring from Washington State.

Washington State: Earned a varsity letter after starting all 12 games on the offensive line for the Cougars. He started at right guard in the team’s season-opener at BYU, then started at left guard in WSU’s 24-20 win over Eastern Washington. He started a total of three games at right guard (BYU, UNLV, Colorado), one at left guard (EWU), five at right tackle (Oregon, Oregon State, California, Stanford, Utah) and the final three games of the season at left tackle (UCLA, Arizona State, Washington). He redshirted in 2010 and earned Scout Team Offensive Player of the Week accolades against Arizona State.

HS: Graduated from Shadle Park HS in 2010. As senior, he served as team captain and was named to the EvergreenStatePreps.com All-State team (3A-and-under). Rodgers was named by the Seattle Times as a “Red Chip” selection as one of the top 22 prospects in the state of Washington. He was also a three-star prospect according to Scout.com and was rated No. 20 overall in the state of Washington and No. 37 at his position nationally. He earned first team All-Greater Spokane League honors in 2008 – one of just three juniors on the 17-man offensive team. He was a three-year letterwinner in football, and played as a tight end and defensive end, and also was a kicker and punter for head coach Mark Hester. He also lettered three times in basketball and participated in baseball. As a sophomore, he helped lead the Highlanders to the State 3A Basketball Tournament. His former Eagle teammate Bo Schuetzle (’09) also graduated from Shadle Park.
