A reliable piece for Legacy Charter this past season was Nate Rodriguez.

The 2019 guard averaged 14.5 PPG and 5.1 RPG for the 17-8 Eagles. He was named Second-Team All-District.

Part of a young program, Rodriguez calls 2017 one of the best seasons in school history. The 6’0″, 180-pounder took a lot from his junior campaign.

“This past season I took more of the leadership role for my team. My game improved on doing multiple things on the floor, as the point guard I created for my teammates in ways that I knew they were comfortable at scoring,” Rodriguez told Prep Hoops Florida. “Also scoring when I needed to and being more poised at times in the game, being a leader on the floor to lead my team to a win. I became a more consistent shooter this season as well.”

Last summer, Rodriguez played for Heart N’ Hustle, a program he’s been with since 9th grade. He said it has been a good experience to play in front of scouts during live period events.

No offers or interest have come yet for Rodriguez.

He pointed to his mid-range jumper, handle and finish as his biggest strengths. Rodriguez says he is aiming to become more poised on the court and work on being more athletic.

Rodriguez has tons of varsity experience as he averaged just over six points per game as a freshman and 11.1 points per game as a sophomore. He’ll get the opportunity to be the guy for Legacy Charter this season headed into his senior year.
