Roderick on North Greenville: "I chose North Greenville because the coaches and the admissions staff were very welcoming. I felt like I had found a new home and everyone started to feel like family. I want to thank God for blessing me with such an amazing and supportive family; I want to thank him for the group of friends that has kept me on the right path outside of my home; I thank him for all my former coaches that helped me improve my game and developed me into the athlete I am today; and finally, I also want to thank him for guiding me to North Greenville to meet such an incredible coaching staff. They gave me an opportunity to continue to do what I love and I will work hard and continue to make them, my family, my friends, and all my former coaches proud. I can't wait for the season to start!"
