Jase Rhodes adds offense
New student Jase Rhodes ‘26 has already made an impact on the North Cross football team scoring two two touchdowns and has the third most receiving rushing yards on the team.
After transferring this year from Woodrow Wilson Middle School, Jase brings substantial football experience. Jase has played football since he was 5 years old as a wide receiver. Jase is inspired by Jerel Rhodes, his dad and football trainer. He also came to NCS with his brother, Jerel ‘24.
“Confidence and swagger” is how football coach Stephen Alexander says Jase plays. He said Jase’s toughness is one of his strongest traits in football.
In the game against Saint Christopher’s Jase, “Took some big hits and he popped right back up,” Alexander said, “showing how tough he is.”
While his main sport is football, Jase also plays soccer and basketball. In the spring Jase does track to train for football. Last summer Jase became an All American when he went to nationals and got fourth in triple jump. He says he does jumping because, “Jumping is fun.”
As a wide receiver, Jase has been the third target for quarterback Connor Lange. He averages about 15 yards per reception and has scored multiple touchdowns.
Jerel has been an offensive threat as a running back averaging 9 yards per carry and scoring five touchdowns.
When he's not playing football Jase inspires his friends with his backflips.
“He loves to do backflips,” Ja’ziel Hart ‘26 said, “once he teaches me I'll be doing them too.”

This is Veronica Weston and Eliza Vogel in Physics! The picture was taken Aug. 26, which is one week and five days since I moved here from Vermont. I like Physics. I also like the sugar cookies with pink frosting at the grocery store.
