Wait... Chris Rodriguez is only 17???!!!!

Article written by:Drew FranklinDrew Franklin


Last week we saw a lot of promise from the younger crop of Wildcats, including true freshman running back Chris Rodriguez, who shined on only two carries in his Kentucky debut. He took his first touch 16 yards, then gained another 27 yards on his second when he carried Murray State defenders all the way to the goal line. It set up a Danny Clark touchdown and Rodriquez was done for the day with 43 yards rushing.

Benny Snell said, “I love Chris. I love what he’s becoming… He’s young and he’s learning, just like me. I see a lot of me in him.”

But enough about all that, let’s get to why we’re here: I just learned Rodriguez is only 17 years old. SEVENTEEN! He carried the ball for 43 yards on two rushes in a college football game and he can’t even vote or serve on a jury or buy fireworks or sign off on his own tattoo. That’s crazy.
