Hailing from Missouri, Rodney Fritz brings championship experience to the Empire.  Transferring to Tennessee State University as a junior in 2008, he played in 17 games and recorded 40 tackles and nine sacks. Following college, Fritz broke into indoor football joining the Huntington Hammer of the Ultimate Indoor Football League.  In his debut season, Fritz led the team in tackles-for-loss and forced fumbles and was second on the team in sacks. Fritz transitioned to the AFL in 2011 and was assigned to the Tulsa Talons.  Shortly after, Fritz spent time in the CFL as a member of both the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts between 2011-2013.  In 2014, Fritz rejoined the AFL and was assigned to the San Jose SaberCats, helping the team win ArenaBowl XXVIII just a year later during the 2015 season.  Fritz spent 2016 splitting time between the Los Angeles Kiss and Arizona Rattlers before joining the Baltimore Brigade for the duration of the 2018 season.  Last season in Baltimore, Fritz played nine games and was third in the League with two forced fumbles.  Fritz looks forward to being reunited with Coach Ewart, whom he played under in Arizona, and potentially winning another ArenaBowl here in the Capital Region!
