Aaron Rodgers | Career and Profession 

Before jumping into Aaron’s professional career and achievements, let’s look into his remarkable college career.

College Career

Even after Rodger’s impressive high school record, he drew little interest from the recruiters.

Reportedly, he stated that the acquired lack of attention in the recruiting process was due to his unimpressive physical size as a high school player of 5’10” (1.78 m) and 165 lbs (75 kgs).

Initially, he wanted to attend Florida State University and play under Bobby Bowden, the college team’s head coach.

However, the university rejected him, and the University of Illinois offered him a chance to compete for a scholarship. However, he declined the offer and considered abandoning football to study in a law school.

Moreover, Butte Community College, located in Oroville, recruited him to play football.

Rising Career

As a freshman in Butte, he led the school with a 10-1 record towards achieving the NorCal Conference championship and a No. 2 national rankings.

There, Jeff Tedford, the head coach of California Golden Bears’ recognized him. Tedford was astonished to hear that none of the college teams recruited Aaron earlier.

As a result of Aaron’s good high school record, he was qualified to transfer to the University of California, Berkeley.
