Hello everyone, my name is Sergio Rodriguez. I am currently a freshman at San Jose State University, majoring in Kinesiology.
My area of emphasis is in Athletic Training and Physical Therapy.

I Love what I do!

My experiences in the field of Athletic Training and Physical Therapy date back to my years as a member of my high school sports teams. As a competitor, I had to deal with sports related injuries and the process of recovering. During those times, I enjoyed the time that I spent with our school’s athletic trainer. I saw the care and the amount of knowledge that he had on regards to our injuries. As a result of this experience, I started to ask him questions about his field of expertise and soon after, I started to assist him with miscellaneous needs in the training room.

When deciding on which university I would attend in the fall, I chose San Jose State because I wanted to major in Kinesiology. Also, San Jose State is regarded to have one of the best available programs.

My mother and father were very influential in my decision. My mom was a veterinarian in her native country of Colombia. The love for science and the passion for helping others runs in our family. My dad used to play competitive soccer and with his guidance, I have become a better athlete.

In high school, I participated in a year of Track & Field. My biggest accomplishment was my 4x400 group that made it to the Central Coast regional semifinals. In addition, I played four seasons of basketball. In my Junior year of basketball I was awarded the "Coaches Award" and in my Senior year I was awarded "Most Improved Player" and obtained the "Su Grewal Award", which stood for an overall great player on and off the court.

I have known Coach Jair Fory for about 8 years now. He has conditioned me for various sports and occasions and has guided me to be the person I am today. He has chosen me as a writer for the Fory Soccer Academy “In My Opinion Blog”.

I will be blogging in references to what I am learning while in school and my overall knowledge of sports and movement.

My blogs are fully open to questions, and comments, and in no way no way do they reflect the opinion of coach Jair Fory or the Fory Soccer Academy and associates. Thank you. Enjoy!
