HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a Homegrown Player on February 20, 2020.
Rodriguez has been turning heads since he made his debut in the USL Championship last year as a 16-year-old. The Rapids knew how talented he was from his time in the academy and his performances at the USL level, and the level of maturity he has already shown in his young professional career gives them the confidence that he has the ability to develop into a top-class goalkeeper.
OUTSIDE MLS: Rodriguez spent 2019 in the USL Championship with Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC. The shot-stopper made 16 appearances for the Rapids’ USL affiliate, earning immediate accolades as the USL Championship Player of the Week for his debut performance as a then-16-year-old. At the end of the season, Rodriguez was named to the USL 20 Under 20 List.
