Marc Rodgers

Senior point guard Marc Rodgers announced the end of his basketball career on Twitter Tuesday night, citing injuries that have plagued him throughout high school and college.

During the Jan. 4 game against Simon Fraser, Rodgers left the game with partial tears in his labrum and major damage to the abductor muscles in his hip.

“It’s something I can’t really come back from. I knew when I hurt my knee in high and the first time in college, I was going to be able to come back,” Rodgers said. “Now I’m doing rehab just to be functional again [and] walk without a limp.”

Rodgers spent the 2015-16 season in recovery after tearing his meniscus, spraining his MCL and patellar tendon and  fracturing his tibia.

Rodgers played in 75 games over the course of five years at CWU, starting in 54.

“[Rogers] is our most experienced guy,” assistant coach Drew Harris said Wednesday.

Rodgers and Harris reported that he will still be a part of the team and attend games and meetings as any player would.

“It’s been a journey,” Rodgers said. “Thank you to the community [and] all of Central for everything.”
