After leading his team to the state title in 2002. He assisted during the summer coaching the Red squad of the Nebraska Coaches Association Volleyball All-Star team. Paxton's Jody Rhodes lead his team to a second state title.
Moving up to Class D-1 from D-2 Paxton captured their second straight Nebraska state title with a 24-1 season record.
Coach Rhodes had to provide the coaching attributes to hold his team together while guiding his team back from big deficits in both games of the D-1 State final. Congratulations Coach Jody Rhodes !!
