Tampa Bay Buccaneer JacQuizz Rodgers, “Last Two Weeks – Full Of Drama”

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back JacQuizz Rodgers says the last two weeks have been full of drama.

“Fortunately, and incredibly, I am doing well after both Hurricane Irma hit Florida, and Harvey hit Houston, my hometown. I was not personally affected by Hurricane Irma because, unlike many others, I was able to evacuate Tampa and go back to my hometown of Rosenberg, TX during that time. My friends and family in Richmond had been hit and were recovering from Hurricane Harvey just days before. They were on my mind a lot throughout that week; I thought about them dealing with and living in major flooding and I wanted to help them and my community in any way I could. When I was back in the Houston area, my family and I donated clothes and shoes to victims of Hurricane Harvey in my hometown community. Many houses and apartments were flooded and people lost everything, so it was important to us to help out, support, and stay in communication with people recovering from Hurricane Harvey.”

The airwaves and social media have been burning up with the Trump-NFL battle. Rodgers has been in the middle of it. “There are many reasons NFL players are kneeling during the National Anthem. For me, it’s peacefully raising awareness for social and racial injustice in this country. This is America and we have that freedom. I don’t take what Donald Trump says personally. There are more important things Donald Trump should be focused on in our country…like hurricane relief.”

What’s kept him on firm footing with chaos around him? “My family, friends, teammates, and the fans have been strong supporters during this challenging period. I understand that somethings are beyond my control and so I stay positive and keep my mind on the things that are important to me. A couple of hurricanes will put things in perspective quickly. I have so much to be thankful for after these past few weeks. I just want to be a support to my family, friends and fans to help us all bounce back.”
