A strong safety by trade, Rhodes fills a variety of roles for Hahnville, lining up all over the field (at defensive end, outside linebacker, and safety).
Two weeks ago, Hahnville began District 6-5A play and the Tigers overwhelmed East Ascension and Destrehan in those contests by a combined scored of 42-17.
"We held East Ascension to only three points," said Rhodes, "and they were always going three-and-out. They couldn't move the ball on us. Their head coach is an ex-offensive coordinator at our school, and we were prepared for them.
"I had nine tackles and an interception in that game, along with five tackles, a sack, and a forced fumbled against Destrehan on Friday."
Earlier in the year, Rhodes had two picks in the Tigers' lone loss (to Lutcher).
"The first interception against Lutcher - I didn't even know I had the ball at first," Rhodes explained. "I reacted without thinking, caught the ball, and didn't realize it at first - until I looked down.
"The second interception in that game came on a play where I slipped at the beginning (of the play). Their quarterback thought the receiver had me beat, but I caught up with him and picked off the pass."
Rhodes, who ran the fastest time of all participants (4.5) at a National Underclassmen Combine in Birmingham, has plenty of speed to recover after a missed step.
"Against East Ascension, I intercepted a screen pass. The running back was open for a moment, but one of my teammates got in there and tipped the pass," said Rhodes, "and I caught it and returned it for 30 yards."
To close out the regular season, Hahnville looks to defeat two undefeated district opponents: Dutchtown and East St. John. Sandwiched in between those two games is 3-4 St. Amant in Week Nine.
"These are the games we've been waiting on," Rhodes said. "I know there will be a lot of scouts there, but that doesn't make a difference to me. I just want to see us make it and win these games, because we feel that we have the best defense in the state. People can barely score on us."
