Aaron Rodgers Life
Aaron Rodgers was born in Chico, California, on December 2, 1983. His parents, Darla Leigh and Edward Wesley Rodgers, moved the family to Ukiah, California, where he attended Oak Manor Elementary School.
Later, they moved to Beaverton, Oregon, where he went to Vose Elementary School and Whitford Middle School. He played baseball at the Raleigh Hills Little League as a shortstop, center fielder, and pitcher. The Rodgers family moved back to Chico in 1997, and Aaron attended Pleasant Valley High School.
He was the quarterback for two years, and in 2001, he set a single-season school record with 2,466 total yards. Aaron graduated from Pleasant Valley High School in the spring of 2002.
Despite his impressive high school football record, Aaron Rodgers didn’t attract much interest from Division I programs, largely due to his height and weight. He was only offered a chance to compete for a scholarship as a walk-on at the University of Illinois, which he declined.
He then enrolled in Butte Community College in Oroville, where he threw 26 touchdowns in his freshman season, leading the school to a 10–1 record and a No. 2 national ranking. Jeff Tedford, the head coach of the California Golden Bears, discovered Rodgers while he was recruiting another player at Butte Community College.
Due to his good high school scholastic record, Aaron was eligible to transfer to the University of California, Berkeley after only one year of junior college.
As a junior college transfer, Aaron Rodgers had three years of eligibility at Cal. He was named the starting quarterback in the fifth game of the 2003 season, beating the only team that offered him a Division I opportunity out of high school, Illinois.
In his second career start, he led the team to a 21–7 halftime lead against #3 USC but was replaced in the second half due to injury. The Bears won in triple overtime, and Aaron passed for 394 yards, earning the game MVP in the Insight Bowl against Virginia Tech.
In 2004, Aaron led Cal to a 10–1 record and top-five ranking at the end of the regular season, with their only loss to No. 1 USC. He finished the 2004 season with 2,566 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions, leading the Pac-10 with a 66.1% pass completion percentage.
He finished ninth in Heisman Trophy voting and decided to forgo his senior season to enter the 2005 NFL Draft after the Holiday Bowl loss to Texas Tech.
