IMLAY CITY — Imlay City’s Alfredo Rodriguez made a verbal commitment to become a part of the Adrian College men’s soccer team recently.

In addition to Adrian College, Rodriguez received recruiting interest from Spring Arbor University, Edgewood College and Midland University.

Imlay City’s Alfredo Rodriguez looks for an open teammate during a game last season.

He attracted their attention by landing a spot among the state’s top players three of his four seasons. That impressive stretch saw him chosen to the Division 3 All-State
first team lineup as a senior and junior, while claiming All-State honorable mention plaudits his sophomore campaign.

Rodriguez was also chosen to the All-BWAC, All-District and All-Region lineups each varsity campaign.

He also was the Blue Water Area Conference Player of the Year during his junior campaign.

With his help, Imlay City won the Blue Water Area Conference title four straight seasons.
