Aaron Rodgers Early life
He was born to Edward Wesley Rodgers and Darla Leigh. From 1973-1976 his father played football as an offensive lineman for the Chico State Wildcats. His family moved to Ukiah, California where he attended Oak Manor Elementary School.
He was featured on the front page of the Ukiah Daily Journal at the age of 10 for his top performance at a local basketball free throw competition. Later his family moved to Beaverton, Oregon, where he attended Vose Elementary School and Whitford Middle School and played baseball in the Raleigh Hills Little League at shortstop canter field and pitcher.
In 1997, his family returned to Chico and attended Pleasant Valley High School starting for two years at quarterback and garnered 4,421 passing yards. In 2001, he set a single-season school record with 2,466 total yards.
He attracted little interest from Division I programs despite his record-setting high school statistics. He wanted to enroll at Florida State and play under head Bobby Bowden but he was rejected. He was then recruited to play football at Butte Community College in Oroville, a junior college about 15 miles (25 km) southeast of Chico.
Aaron Rodgers Professional career
Before the 2005 NFL draft, he was expected to be selected early as he had posted impressive numbers as a junior with Cal, throwing for 2,320 yards with a 67.5 completion rating in the regular season. When he completed 23 consecutive passes against the eventual national champion USC he had tied an NCAA record.
He was confident that he would be drafted to the team he supported and grew up near, the San Francisco 49ers who possessed the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. The 49ers, however, drafted quarterback Alex Smith out of Utah instead, and Rodgers slid all the way down to the 24th overall pick by the Green Bay Packers. He was one of five other quarterbacks coached by Jeff Tedford to be drafted in the first round of an NFL draft.
He agreed to a reported 5-year $7.7 million deal in August 2005, that included $5.4 million in guaranteed money and the potential to pay him $24.5 million if all incentives were met. He received his first extended look in the opening preseason game against the San Diego Chargers after replacing Favre.
He completed 18 passes for 201 yards on November 29, 2007, with no interceptions. He brought the team from a 17-point deficit to a 3-point deficit.
