Roderick Green Heading Home

Roderick Green's journey has been long and complicated. He's gotten married, worked for Comcast and now he's gearing up to play Division 1 college basketball. The former Boyd Anderson (Fla.) standout will return home to play college ball.

A little more than a year ago, Roderick Green was hooking up cable television for Comcast. Now he's going to go back home and play Division 1 basketball for Florida Atlantic.

The 6-foot-7 ½, 240-pound Green was a double-double guy as a senior in high school at Boyd Anderson (Fla.). Then he went to Miami Dade, but things didn't work out. Green left to become a computer technician for Comcast – working 12-hour days.

``It was OK, but it wasn't my calling," Green said. "I'm not ready for that part of my life yet."

Green, who got married to Kiarra Repress on Nov. 8 last year, picked up and went to Redlands Community College (Okla.) – where he sat out as a redshirt last season.

Fortunately for Green, one of his former coaches at Miami Dade and another from Redlands both joined new FAU head coach Rex Walters' staff.

They saw the versatile Green – who is a face-up four-man who should be an immediate impact player for Walters & Co.

``They both ended up there," Green said. "I'm excited. This is going to be a homecoming for me. I'm glad to be going home and show everybody I can do it."
