Darreus Rogers looks back at career and forward to Rose Bowl

Darreus Rogers recaps his career, including some of his highlight plays this season, while looking forward to his final game -- the Rose Bowl.

Darreus Rogers enters the final game of his USC career with 122 catches, 1,448 yards and 10 touchdown grabs. The senior wideout watched the Trojans play in the Rose Bowl growing up and wants to leave his own mark, by adding to his career numbers.

A two-year starter, Rogers has become one of the Trojans' most consistent weapons and grew into the most reliable target on the outside after having some struggles with drops early in his career. Rogers has seen just about everything in his time as a Trojan after graduating from high school in 2011, but having to gray shirt before enrolling in January of 2012. 

Since then, he has been in the receiver rotation, racking up three years where he consistently produced similar numbers, averaging 23.7 catches and 263.7 yards per season. Rogers has blossomed this season with 51 catches for 654 yards, including a couple of incredible grabs where he has stolen the ball from a defender.

Watch Darreus Rogers, above, talk about his spectacular catches this season along with what it means to play in the Rose Bowl -- a game he grew up watching, and how his career has played out, including the Trojans run to the Rose Bowl this season.
