Rodrick Fisher leaves WSU football team

Fisher commits to Washington State

PULLMAN, Wash. — Rodrick Fisher has left the Washington State University football team.

The university confirmed Fisher’s departure, but did not allude to why he is no longer with the Cougs. His name has been removed from the roster online.

The wide receiver went to WSU from East Valley High School. Throughout high school, Fisher was homeless. He told 4 News Now in 2016 that he hung out with the wrong crowd and put himself in dangerous situations. He found football and eventually a connection with his coach, who later adopted him.

This upcoming season would have been Fisher’s third year with the team.
