Rodgers named to SEC Community Service Team.
May 9, 2014
In a continuing effort to recognize the accomplishments of student-athletes beyond the field of competition, the SEC once again highlighted a Community Service Team for men's golf, and Brandon Rodgers is Tennessee's representative.
A senior from Farragut, Tenn., Rodgers has been a community outreach leader for the Tennessee men's golf program. He has shown outstanding character and been a tremendous ambassador for the University of Tennessee.
Rodgers has served as a mentor for the First Tee program in a partnership with the Tennessee golf team. He also has volunteered at Knoxville's Love Kitchen, served as the men's golf SAAC representative, and participated in the Voloween event.
In the classroom, Rodgers excelled, being named a 2013 All-American Scholar and contributing to the Tennessee's Male Scholar-Athlete Team of the Year.
On the course, Rodgers appeared in nine tournaments this season and recorded his best finish at the Bobby Nichols Intercollegiate (T-6th).
The SEC names a Community Service Team for each of its 21 league-sponsored sports, looking to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to his or her community through superior service efforts.
