Rumble receives preseason honor

Oak Harbor High School graduate Rodrick Rumble, a senior football player at Idaho State University, has been named to the Sports Network preseason Football Championship Subdivision All-America team.

In 2011 Rumble set an Idaho State record for receptions in a season with 112 and the second most receiving yards in school history with 1,348.

The 6-2, 201-pound wide receiver is tied for sixth all-time in single-season receiving touchdowns with nine and twice had 14 receptions in a game, third best in ISU history. Against Washington State, Rumble had the school's third-best effort with 218 receiving yards.

Rumble's performance last year earned him first-team, all-conference Big Sky as well as earning College Sports Madness, Phil Steele, the Sports Network and the Associated Press All-American honors.

The Sports Network FCS preseason All-America team consists of 93 players split over first, second and third teams. Rumble is a second-team selection.

Rumble is having success in the classroom, as well. He was a member of a six-person team from the mass communications Advertising Campaigns class that won the Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company of Idaho Student Marketing Plan Contest.

The contest offered students the opportunity to use their ingenuity and creativity to develop a comprehensive and practical marketing plan to attract new customers to Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company of Idaho.
