From an undrafted free agent out of the University of Virginia, to a Super Bowl Champion, Philadelphia Eagles safety Rodney McLeod has proven that hard work and sacrifice can lead to great things.
Rodney’s story is that of a guy who was constantly overlooked and underestimated. “I’m not the biggest, tallest, or fastest guy. There [are] a lot of things going against me, or [things] that people have said I couldn’t do, but I continue to search and gain that respect, day in and day out, whether it’s on the football field or just as a human being.”
From his childhood to the present, Rodney has always understood who he is and the importance of the support around him. “That [Super Bowl] ring symbolizes a lot more than just me. It represents my entire family and everybody that’s played a huge role. What I try to tell people is in order to be successful, you’ve got to have a great support system and positive people around you, and that’s what I’ve got.”
