Athletic Excellence


The 5-foot-8, 115-pound senior won all three major invitationals staged in the state this past season. Rodrigues broke the tape at the Frank Kelley Invitational, the Frank Mooney Invitational and the Division 1 race at the MSTCA Cup—leading his team to a second-place finish in the latter. Also the 2020 Lynn Item Player of the Year, he was a 2019 Boston Globe and Boston Herald All-Scholastic selection, taking third at the 2019 All-State Meet and finishing second at the Eastern Massachusetts Division 3 meet.

Academic Achievement


Rodrigues has maintained a 3.24 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to run on scholarship at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst this fall.

Exemplary Character


A member of the Marblehead High Engineering Club, Rodrigues has volunteered locally with the Marblehead-Swampscott YMCA and as a youth soccer coach.
