Hey Huskers, most of you probably know me as the K-State blogger here on SB Nation, but in a former life I was a kid growing up in Aurora, Nebraska. A friend pointed me toward this excellent article about Aurora offensive lineman Andrew Rodriguez, who will be a Husker next fall. He's been a key player for an Aurora team that won the Class B state championship last season and may be on its way to doing so again this season.
The article focuses on A-Rod's interesting history, growing up in Spanish Harlem before moving to Aurora. My dad still teaches at Aurora High School and says that not only is the kid an outstanding athlete, but he's as nice of a kid as you'd ever want to meet. I'll be hoping for the best for this guy, even if he is wearing scarlet and cream.
