Life School Oak Cliff senior wide receiver Rodrick Lancaster has signed a national letter of intent to play football for The University of North Texas. Lancaster, who led his team to the school’s first-ever playoff berth, caught 35 passes for 705 yards and seven touchdowns this past season. Named First Team All-District 6-AA the past two seasons, Lancaster also anchored the school’s 4x100m relay team which qualified for the UIL State Meet in 2011.
A student at Life School since 2003 and an active member of Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Dallas, Lancaster plans to study Sports Management.
As a member of Coach Dan McCarney’s second recruiting class, Lancaster will enjoy playing in UNT’s new Apogee Stadium as well as playing on the national level, including the Mean Green’s season opener at LSU next September.
