Romeo Rodriguez named Player of the Week

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - This week’s Player of the Week award goes to United South Panthers’ linebacker, Romeo Rodriguez.

Last week, the Panthers were able to pull off a last second win over United, and a big part of that was the Panthers’ defense holding the Longhorns to only 17 pounds on the night.

Rodriguez was a key player in that effort, leading the team with nine tackles, a sack, two forced fumbles and one recovery.

The Panthers’ coach says Rodriguez flies to the ball with purpose while the senior loves playing with the Panthers.

Congratulations to Rodriguez and the rest of the United South Panthers on this award.
