After his older brother s death in front of him in a freak rodeo accident Rod became emotionally bankrupt, and began using marijuana and booze as a way of coping with his loss.

He eventually got his act together thanks to the never ending support of his mother and dad. In the aftermath of an accidental gun shot Rod was left seemingly a quadriplegic and was told that he may not survive let alone physically recover this at the very moment he was awarded a full-ride scholarship to Washington State University.

He dropped from school out of depression, but fought his way back in what would be the struggle of a lifetime, rejoined the WSU Cougars, thus defeating the biggest odds he would ever face. Rod then played a season of seasons for Washington State University. He was a key component in the defensive half of a team that made history in the state of Washington and in the PAC 10 conference in the 1981 season. He and his teammates, under the guidance of the entire coaching staff with Jim Walden at the helm, wrote new pages for the chronicles of the Palouse.
