• William "Bump" Roddey graduated from Northwestern High School in 1992 as a three (3) sport letterman in baseball, football, and track.  Bump started as a sophomore and lettered on the baseball diamond as the Trojans 2nd baseman. On the grid iron, Bump set multiple single season records in football his junior year as receiver and kick returner in 1990. Not returning to baseball for his junior season, he moved over to track and field, where the legendary Coach Bob Jenkins molded the talented athlete into a complete competitor. Bump competed at a very high level in the 110 and the 220 hurdles.  Bump says his most memorable track moment was getting his one opportunity to fill in on the 4x1 relay team where he recorded one of the fastest splits of the year.  Projected to be one of the top athletes at Northwestern, his senior year Bump saw his athletic career come to an end after suffering a career ending knee injury in the Herald Football Jamboree.  Bump never stepped onto the field, track, or diamond again.

    After high school, Bump enrolled at York Technical College becoming a first generation college student in his family. Bump earned his Associates Degree in 1994 before transferring to Winthrop University where he obtained a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Economics in 1996.  Bump was later elected to the York County Council in 2010 and continues to serve the Rock Hill/York County community.
