Football
(JR, WR - Duarte, Calif.)
Rogers hauled in six catches for 206 yards and two touchdowns during the first half of a 56-0 home win over Whittier. He became the first Kingsmen in the program's 50-plus year history to amass 200-plus receiving yards in a home game. All six of his receptions covered at least 20 yards and for either first downs or scores. His first catch of 51 yards moved both him and quarterback Jake Laudenslayer into the program's all-time top-10 career receiving yardage and passing yardage lists, respectively on the same play. Rogers leads the SCIAC with 501 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns. He currently ranks 12th in Division III averaging over 125 receiving yards per game.
