Rogers was the James River District Player of the Year after averaging 17 points, 12 rebounds and six assists per game during his senior season at Randolph-Henry. He had a dream to play Division One basketball. He was injured during his second year at Fork Union postgraduate school so he ended up joining UVa as a walk-on.
For Rogers' dedication, he earned a full scholarship for this season. The 24-year-old has played in 15 games and has scored 10 points but none were bigger than the three he scored against Syracuse.
