Roderick King, a senior at Poteet High school, has signed with Fort Scott Community College in Kansas to continue his football career.

This has been a dream of King’s since the start of his football career.

“I wanted something new, out of state and Kansas fit perfectly. Plus, I’ve always wanted to play in the cold,” King said.

King is a very versatile athlete, he started on the Aggies offensive line, but he was also used for defense as a nose guard.

“This is a goal for every coach, to see their players extend their education and their opportunity to play in college,” said Poteet’s head football coach Darby House.

“It feels great to be able to continue my football career in college and hopefully into the NFL as well.” said King.

Although King achieved his goal for college football, he has his mind and heart set on playing big Division I football and in the NFL after college.

“Roderick has the potential to play wherever he wants. Now it’s up to him whether he wants it or not,” House said. “Roderick is a great kid, he plays with heart and that’s what makes him a great player. We wish him the best of luck.”
