The close of the 2013 season found Rodgers trailing behind only Olympic champions and all-time greats Usain Bolt and Justin Gaitlin on the world 100m rankings. Rodgers has found some of the better results of his career competing at the Nike Prefontaine Classic. In 2011, Rodgers ran a personal best time at the meet and was the second fastest by an American that year. In 2009, he bested a field which included former world record holder, Asafa Powell of Jamaica. Rogers won NAIA individual titles competing for Oklahoma Baptist and owned the top 60m time in the world in 2011. He was dangerously close to quitting the sport before meeting his current coach, Darryl Woodson, while ordering a hot dog at the 2007 USA Outdoor Championships, who convinced him they should work together. His personal best of 9.85 is tied for fifth on the all-time U.S. list.
