Dominic Rhodes For Pro Bowl

If you don’t already know, Dominic Rhodes is the starting running back of the Indianapolis Colts. He went to Abilene Cooper, the same high school as the Silva Boyz. The oldest of the Silva boyz, Andrew, played on the same football team with Rhodes. Rhodes has always been a special talent, leading the Abilene Cooper Cougars to the 1996 5A State title game. Unfortunately, that day was not the Cougars day, and we lost to Austin Westlake who was quarterbacked then by current New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. After high school Rhodes then went on to Tyler Junior College where he twice earned All-America honors. Rhodes then transferred to Midwestern State University where he set several school and conference records. In 2001 Rhodes was signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent. That year Rhodes rushed for 1,104 yards the most ever by an undrafted rookie free agent in NFL history. You can read Rhodes’ complete biography and career stats here. As you can see, we are proud of our hometown star. In fact we want to do our part to see Rhodes is rewarded for his hard work with a trip to the Pro Bowl. The NFL allows fans to vote for the football players they would like to see in Honolulu here. Once there simply click “VOTE NOW” and then you select the stars you want to go to the Pro Bowl. You can vote for every position but if you would rather, you can select to vote for just one position or just one player. So vote for Dominic Rhodes. Then vote for him again. Then once more just because. Hopefully we will see Dominic in Hawaii come February!

Vote here!
