How he joined the Club: Signed as a Homegrown Player on March 25, 2020.
Identified by the Indiana Fire Academy scouting staff, including Indiana Fire Academy Technical Director Phil Presser, Rodríguez joined the Indiana Fire in the fall of 2017. In January 2019, Rodríguez transferred to the Chicago Fire Academy in order to develop his talents through the resources available in Chicago. In 21 appearances (15 starts) for the Academy, he’s provided one goal and one assist.
Within just a few months of joining the Fire Academy and receiving exposure through the Development Academy, Rodríguez was called into his first U.S. Youth National Team camp. The midfielder ended his 2019 season by captaining the U.S. U-15s to first place in Group B in the Concacaf Boys’ U-15 Championship, where they eventually fell in the semifinals to tournament host Portugal.
