Rutledge, Wondell

tntafl14 rutledgeCard: TNT AFL Talons 2014
Acquired: IP 2014, San Antonio Talons vs. New Orleans Voodoo

I walked up to Wondell on the field where he was chumming around with his friends. In an attempt to embarrass him with his card, I almost had it taken from me, as his mother went berserk when she saw it. As I explained to Wondell why I make these cards and how much I know it means to them as me, the card got passed further and further into the small crowd that had gathered. When she asked if she could keep it, Wondell explained to her, that he had plenty, since I gave him a stack of extras to keep. He excitedly signed my card and thanked me for my work.

Wondell has played for the Tampa Bay Storm, Orlando Predators, and San Jose Sabrecats, since joining the AFL in 2012. Well versed, Rutledge can handle playing on the defensive line, center and fullback- evidenced by his 32 yards on 22 carries and 3 touchdowns. Wondell helped replace Colton Jones at center after Jones went down with a season ending injury. Wondell played in 14 games for the Talons in 2014 signing with the Rio Grande Valley Sol of the X-League later that year.
