NEW PORT RICHEY -- It’s never easy to lose a 1,600-yard rusher like Ridgewood did when Sterling Ross graduated. But the Rams appear to be in capable hands -- and feet -- at tailback.

In last week’s preseason game against Sunlake, Ridgewood got a nice performance from junior Cameron Rodriguez, who scored on runs of 72 and 65 yards.

“He’s done a good job,” Rams coach Chris Taylor said. “He made both those runs in the (second half) while playing both ways. That’s pretty good.”

A year ago, the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Rodriguez started half the season at fullback. Now, he’s splitting time at tailback with Nick Martino, arguably the team’s best athlete.

Oh, and he also plays linebacker.

“Cameron works pretty hard and runs downhill,” Taylor said. “He’s not afraid of contact, and keeps his legs churning.”
