John Rhode was born and raised in Kennewick Washington, John was one of the strongest athletes to attend Kennewick High School. Life had become very difficult for John after becoming overweight by the third grade. John developed a sense of humor to help him combat negative comments from thoughtless classmates. As a Freshman in high school John stood six feet tall and weighed a whopping 285 pounds. John worked very hard to become physically fit. Devoting hours of his time in the high school weight room, John graduated high school 6'4" and 240 pounds.
John was diligent in the weight room, but lackadaisical in the classroom. Academically suspended for the first half of the football season his senior year, John never achieved his football goals. After a lot of help from his Head Coach Ed Troxel, John received a scholarship to play football at the Junior College level. John struggled with his failure to live up to the standards that he set for himself. After a brief uneventful season of JC athletics John had met none of his football goals and felt as though he had never reached his athletic potential. Devastated by the feelings of failure and the thought that his best years were behind him, John developed an eating disorder. True physical challenges in life had passed him by and he had failed.
