Former wrestler Austin Waters summed up what Coach Rhodes was to the students.

“Coach Rhodes was more than just a coach for me. He was my math teacher and the inspiration for my being a math education major. He led me to believe in myself more and more. He made me a better person on and off the mat. He will forever be a mentor to me.”
