Friday Headlines: Chris Rodriguez Edition

While at the NFL Combine, Rodriguez will look to earn support for the Lupus Foundation of America.

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Practice Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL Combine begins next week at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Four Kentucky Wildcats have been invited: quarterback Will Levis, defensive back Carrington Valentine, offensive guard Tashawn Manning and running back Chris Rodriguez.

While Rodriguez is there, he’ll look to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America, which is an organization that means a lot to him. His mother, who battled Lupus, passed away unexpectedly on January 11th during his prep for the combine.

The former Kentucky star is taking pledges for his performance at the combine. His part of the combine is scheduled to begin March 6th. Rodriguez is setting his goal at 14 bench press reps with a fundraising goal of $2,400. He wore #24 while playing at Kentucky.

This is an incredible opportunity to support the Lupus Foundation of America. If you’re interested in joining, Rodriguez has a Pledge Page that can be found by visiting this link.
