From 2007 of his freshman year at Katy High School, Rogers played the sport Football and represented his position very well! Going to the 07-08 5A-Div.1 State Championships and winning is a big step in the Texas football world, especially when you win another state title in the 08-09 5A-Div.2 State Championship your sophomore year and then going a third time your Junior year to end up finishing as a finalist! That just goes to show how much talent a team can have. Rogers packs 3 rings in football including the national holder of the decade, "Team Of The Decade" ring.
Born in Houston, Texas on August 10, 1992, Rogers grew up playing many sports including Baseball, Golf, football, Track and Field, and Basketball. Rogers' speed was founded by his football coach at Katy High School. When his coach and a few friends started suggesting he run summer track, he immediately had success in the 100 and 200 meters by breaking multiple meet records for age group. In addition, he was an anchor leg of a nationally successful 4 x 100 m relay team along with second leg Deveon Dinwiddie (an incoming freshman as a Kansas State University Running Back), third leg Corey Henley (an incoming freshman at Northern Virginia Community College), and first leg D.J. Hubbard (a highly recruited senior Running Back at La Hoya Community High School), who were all very fast at a prestigious age, toured the Texas and Gulf area with Rogers throughout his early USATF career.
