Izzy Rodriguez, a junior on the Ohio State women’s soccer team, was named Third Team Scholar All-North/Central Region, which was announced by the United Soccer Coaches. 

A two-time Academic All-Big Ten pick and OSU Scholar-Athlete, Rodriguez boasts a 3.78 grade-point average while studying finance.

An Ohio State co-captain in 2019, Rodriguez earned her third All-Big Ten selection in as many seasons, receiving Third Team All-Big Ten honors after securing First Team All-Big Ten laurels as a sophomore and Third Team All-Big Ten accolades as a freshman. 

After playing in every game of her first two seasons in Columbus, Rodriguez started 17 matches as a junior, playing the third-most minutes on the team as a left back. The talented defender tied for second on the team with two assists and added one goal. 

A Canton, Mich., native, Rodriguez did not come off the field for a single minute of the games she played in throughout her junior campaign, only missing the Oct. 27 contest at Iowa due to injury.

Rodriguez has appeared in 57 matches, starting all but one, while scoring five goals and adding nine assists, while excelling on defense across her first three seasons in Columbus.
