Name: Trey Rodriguez
School: South Dakota/Florida Atlantic
Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
My personal goal was to graduate school with my degree and make it back to the division one level. I stopped playing at Marshall university after week 3 in 2017 and that forced me to graduate on my own. I believe my last semester I took 15 credits in order to graduate so 45 hours in total.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches and previous teammates would describe me as a versatile speed back with great vision and work ethic. They would also say I’m electric with the ball in my hand & I’m good at making people miss tackles.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
When studying film I’m watching all of my movements, I pay most attention to what fronts are exposed so I can know exactly how to read the defense properly to help my offense be productive.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from the other backs is I can do it all, meaning I can line up in the backfield, slot or any special teams. I was ranked the number 15 overall all purpose back in the nation coming out of the class of 2014.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
Honestly I don’t have any agents to represent me or to direct me to professionals to train. I’ve been just training myself. Lifting and running drills etc. I also have useful resources back in Daytona Beach. I’ve been playing ball my whole life so I’m sure I know how to be properly ready mentally & physically for any opportunity that’s given.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
On the field I believe I can help any offense that needs a versatile speed back. I also believe I can help any team that needs a special team player. Off the field I believe I can be the guy to lead by example by giving back to local community as a volunteer consistently.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
My final pitch to any team in the NFL or pro level would be if you want an underdog that has something to prove, I’m the guy the you’re looking for.
