When he was a Net, Rodney Rogers was always in motion...on the court and at a nearby truck driving school. Lawrence Frank recalls, "He’d be there at 5:30 in the morning, and then he’d come in to practice." Once retired, Rogers put the license to use, running a truck company, operating heavy equipment for the city of Durham, NC. Fate turned cruel when his love for the wheel led to an ATV accident...and paralysis.
