I don't know that I would be kicking any dirt in the face of VT. But I would wear our uniform very proud. And be proud for your team mates around you, b/c you can bet they are very proud to be a Tiger. And don't be shocked when our fans call you out on that day. As I'm sure your own statesmen will also. B/C we're all proud to be an American. America thanks you for your service and the sacrifices you have gave for your country, and your fellow man. Now have fun living your dream. Its yours and you have earn the chance. Good Luck, and Gooooo Tigerssss!!!

kick off. If TAMU can do it with their 12th man, you know Dabo will get him on the field.

I see your point but if the man is good, let him redshirt and then kick some VT/ACC ### over the next several years!!! Oh and I def see him leading the team down the hill against VT

even with a redshirt this is the last chance he will have to play against VT


You're forgetting about future ACC CG's?***

This story makes me proud to be a Tiger fan. I get the feeling Rodriguez is going to be a huge figure in the locker room. I love that Dabo reached out to him as well. This is only the beginning of a great story.

I haven't really followed the story, but watched the Dan Rather videos. How is it that he ended up at Clemson instead of VPI?


This young man GETS IT. We are lucky to have him.

Best of luck to you, Daniel!

Once you experience your first home game in Death Valley, you will never think about Va Tech again.
Welcome to the family.

Welcome aboard soldier. Hopefully the rest of the team will train as hard as Mr Rodriguez. He looks like the energizer bunny. He keeps going and going and going.


Man,would be great if TIGERNET can get a video interview

This is awesome. For once,i am happy to see my tax dollars support a worthy cause. This young man has more than earned his gi bill funds to attend college. Can't wait to see him on the field in orange!

You know you've raised a real tiger fan when you ask your son what he wants his cub scout pinewood derby car to be and he says a Tiger!


Doesn't it make you proud to be a Tiger? Welcome Daniel!!***

There are no laws when hunting chicken. Nature has

determined theirs to be a pathetic existence, so any killing is considered a mercy killing.

Would love to see him lead us down the hill against VT. This guy has some serious drive. There is a lot of strength in that smaller package and I bet he could knock most of us on our butts. Go Daniel!! Imagine him giving a pep speach before the game against the Coots.

Hey Guys, new to these boards, been on the Scout boards for 9 years (bugmantom).

Anyhow, I would love to see Daniel lead the team down the Hill carrying the US flag to open our home season. Great story of a good kid.
