TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Rhett Rodriguez had a year to decide where he wanted to play his high school football.

He chose a program that went 0-10 in 2012.

The only son of Arizona Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez is already competing for a starting position on the varsity squad at Catalina Foothills.

The Falcons are in their first season under head coach Jeff Scurran, the legendary football mind who won a state championship at Sabino and quickly turned a winless Santa Rita program into a state contender.

Scurran is a Pima County Sports Hall of Famer.

Rodriguez, who lives in the Catalina Foothills, says he chose the school because that's where his friends were going. This after his sister Raquel spent her one and only high school year at Salpointe Catholic, a school with one of the most dominate football programs in the region.

Young Rhett will not automatically be anointed the starter. He will have to battle it out against senior Erik Parkhurst, a transfer from CDO who started his prep career with the Lancers, but Scurran already has glowing things to say about his freshman.

"He brings the kind of football knowledge you would expect being Rich Rod's son," said Scurran. "He's a 4.0 student and he's been around this stuff so long I don't think he feels the pressure and if he does he sure doesn't show it.

Many football watchers believe CFHS can win eight games this season with Scurran at the helm.

The Falcons open their season next Friday night at Desert View.
