When Steven Rhodes first saw a Marines commercial, he saw leadership, integrity, and a commitment to legacy. On that day in 2008, Rhodes decided to join. While serving, he learned that discipline, humility, hard work, and determination are the keys to success.
Following five years of service, leaving as a Sergeant, Rhodes reported to Middle Tennessee State University as a walk on. After fighting for his right to play, he now plays defensive end and special teams, carrying the lessons he learned in the Marines with him onto the field.
In this moving video, Rhodes talks about the impact that being a Marine has had on his life, an experience that changed the destiny of his family, an experience he "wouldn't change for anything." Hearing him speak about it is humbling.
