Florida Athlete Tries Running Back And Corner

Orlando (FL) athlete Isaac Rodriguez was limited as a junior, as he transferred into his new school. With a complete offseason under his belt, he looks to help his team on both sides of the ball as a senior.

Isaac Rodriguez is looking forward to a big senior season, after transferring into Orlando (FL) Freedom High School last year. As proof of the way Rodriguez can make an impact, the 5-8, 170-pound standout rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns in Freedom's spring game. He excels on both sides of the ball at running back and at corner.

Building into that senior year is a heavy 7-on-7 schedule, but also a big summer in terms of prospect camps. Rodriguez started that off by camping at Pitt.

"I thought it was actually one of the best camps we went to up north," Rodriguez said. "I really had fun with it. I worked on my routes. It was the best camp I went to, overall."

At the Pitt camp, Rodriguez worked out with the corners—where he has a knack for coming up and making a big hit. Even though it was no-contact, he was still able to get a lot out of it.

"The drill I liked the most, was where you go around the hoop, and you have to stay low," Rodriguez said. "You have to stay low, and stay cut. That was my favorite drill. I'll play anywhere (in college), offense or defense. I just love to play football."

Aside from the Pitt camp, Freedom was the runner-up out of 38 teams at the UCF 7-on-7 camp. They also had a strong showing at the Battle By The Beach 7-on-7 last month in New Smyrna, Florida.

"We're doing great," Rodriguez said of his offseason. "Our offense is loaded. We have (quarterback) Derik (Abbot) back. We have our top two (running backs) back. Our offense is going to be really good. We just need to focus on our defense."
