The stars of any team understandably get the most headline, but every sports team has personalities who might not be well known but who have a major influence on the team.

For Duke basketball, to us that’s Justin Robinson. The Admiral’s son hasn’t played a lot but he’s had a real impact on his teammates.

For Duke football, walk-on and Durham native Lee Rodio may have a similar impact.

He’s an interesting guy in a lot of ways. A Durham native, he managed to walk on at Duke where he’s a long snapper. As you’ll see though, he’s much more than that.
