Notable: Gerrodd has played varsity football for South all four seasons, taking advantage of the eight-quarter rule during his freshman year to see some time on Friday nights. … He likes the opportunity that the slot receiver position gives for a smaller receiver to make big plays. … “I’d like to improve my 40 time and my timing,” he said. “That will just give me a chance to make more plays.”
